Anyone for cricket?

Posted on: 15 Jun 2016 by Weston Green School | Category: Key Stage 2

Over the course of the term Key Stage 2 has been developing its cricket skills. It has been fantastic to see all the children take an interest in the sport as it can teach them so much more than just being fit. Cricket is about concentration, team work, and always searching to improve.

It has been a delight in particular to see the children in Upper Key Stage 2 demonstrate their skills in the fixtures, with some powerful hitting, accurate bowling and superb fielding on show. In Years 3 and 4 the skills have been developing but at a slower rate as the children get used to the rigours of the sport. Bowling for instance asks the children to perform multiple tasks at the same time, such as keeping the bowling arm straight, releasing at the right time, maintaining an upright position and still remaining accurate. Nevertheless, the children perform admirably and are still as committed as ever to improve their skills.

It has been an outstanding cricket season so far, with plenty of victories over other schools, with the sun (mostly) shining and, most of all, the children competing with a smile on their faces. Long may it continue.
