Kent County Basketball Finals
On 1st February 2018 Charlton represented all 52 primary’s in Dover at a Kent County Basketball Final.
We arrived at school at 10 to 8 and went in a minibus to Medway, where the competition would be taking place. We wore dark blue t-shirts with Dover written on the back. We arrived ready for our first match which we won. Because of the hope we gained after winning we fought hard but we just couldn’t get the goals and we lost. Our third game we lost but we won our fourth joyfully. Our fifth game was close but we just couldn’t grab the win. Our last two games were the best. We won our sixth which meant we came 5th out of our group of 8. As there were two courts we played the team that came 5th on the other court. We drew our last game which meant it went to golden goal. We had a team talk then ran onto the court to give it all we had left. Within the first minute of the game Thomas had a chance and hit the rim so we had won our final game. We came 7th out of all 16 teams there! We had an amazing team with; Finley [our captain], Kiera, Chloe, Aleks, Alessio, me and Thomas, the only Yr5 In our team. We had an amazing day and thank you to Mrs Gardiner and Ms Lanigan for training us in the mornings and after to school to prepare us for the competition.
