Unseen passage for Class 4 English - Worksheet 1

It was the day of the basketball selection test at my school. I was in the school hall, hoping to be selected. I was nervous as there were many girls who seemed much taller than me. I usually played basketball for fun with my friends.

At the start of the selection test, we were told to find a partner. The coaches passed us the ball and we dribbled it up and down the court. It was quite easy. Next, we had to run sideways while passing the ball to our partners. The coaches wrote down some notes as they watched our performance.

Halfway through the selection test, some of the girls who were not selected left the hall. I heaved a sigh of relief as I had made it through to the next stage. Before long, only ten participants were left in the hall. After that, we were placed into two teams. I prepared myself for the final match.

Our team was determined to win. It was a tough game as the other team had some excellent players. At the final moment, I managed to steal the ball from a reckless opponent. Then, I glanced at the clock.

We had one minute left. I ran to the hoop and aimed the ball at it. I threw the ball and it passed through the hoop! Beep! The game ended. One of the coaches gave me a thumbs up. I smiled as I knew I was going to be accepted into the school basketball team.
