Bowling and batting skills

Year 5 Kestrels had some more cricket training this morning.

It was another chance to put their bowling and batting skills in to practice. More and more skills are being built on and put in o the test when the matches are on.

Well done Year 5. Lots of concentration and listening skills were needed, great practice for training in the afternoon.

Cricket Coaching

Year 5 Kestrels had their second session of cricket coaching today. They started off with a warm-up learning how to effectively carry a cricket bat whilst running, this is by carrying it and rocking it like it is a baby.

They then practised hitting a cricket ball and catching a cricket ball in their teams, rotating which role they were doing.

A game of cricket then gave the Kestrels a real chance to show off their skills! I think we are going to have some fantastic cricket players in Year 5 Kesterels!

Cricket coaching

Kestrels have begun having cricket coaching this morning.

After some great warm ups, the class were taught some basic techniques for bowling.
They had great fun trying to deliver a ball, using the windmill motion for the arms.

As they practiced it got easier and the coach kept reminding us how our arms should always be straight, head straight and standing side-on to the opponent/wicket.

We can not wait for next weeks session, so we can add to our skills, in preparation for the cricket tournament.

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!

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.

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!
