Cricket training

Another wonderful session with our cricket coach this morning.

We have been putting our previous skills into practice, wonderful bowling actions as well as batting. Lovely to see the children remember the details of how to stand, place feet and swing their arms. Keep it up Kestrels.
We have some budding bowlers in the class and Hanson managed 9 runs with a super smash when batting! Well done Hanson!

Cricket coaching


During PE, Year 5 took part in another cricket coaching session. As the weather was terrible outside, the session took place in the hall but that didn’t stop the children from learning new skills. Well done to Year 5 for taking part and persevering even when they found it difficult.

Cricket techniques


On Tuesday Class 5 enjoyed a fantastic cricket coaching session with TSR.

The children developed their bowling and fielding techniques, during a fun filled session, which is leading to them taking part in a multi school tournament in the Summer Term. Throughout the children displayed great enthusiasm, excellent listening skills and perseverance in trying to master challenging techniques.

All the children agree that they can’t wait for next week’s session.

Ball handling


In this week’s PE lesson, the children practiced their ball handling skills using a basketball. Kian make a blog effort during the lesson and Soloman and Joshua demonstrated excellent skills in front of the whole class at the end of the lesson. Well done!

Gymnastics techniques


In PE, Year 5 took part in a gymnastics lesson concentrating on technique. Children were lead into a dynamic warm up then went around the hall in small groups using the apparatus. Zara preformed an excellent arabesque and Isabel a forward roll from a raised platform which looked especially difficult! Well done!
