As part of our PE sessions and because the weather has been so great, Year 5 have been taking part in quick cricket matches. For some it is a first introduction into cricket so using the bat and bowling accurately has been a learning curve.

A couple of players have now learnt that cricket is different to rounders and you don’t have to drop the bat before running. As the sessions continue the improvements are there to see and I am sure that a few will be knocking on the club, county and national doors in the future.

A special mention to Rony & Savith who played their first club games this week and were narrowly beaten. As is the English way – it was spin which was their undoing. Get on that front foot boys and you’ll be fine.
