On Monday, each class in Year 1 and Year 5 were treated to a 1 hour training session from a specialist cricket coach through the Lancashire Cricket Foundation.

The children managed to escape the pressures of the classroom for an hour for a fresh and active bit of learning.

Miss Berry from Year 1 said, ‘The kids really enjoyed cricket , they had a go at batting, bowling, balancing, throwing and catching; then played a team game.

Mr Ainsworth from Year 5 said, ‘The children practised bowling actions in pairs, then bowling at the stumps before a game of quick cricket.  The children loved the 1 hour break from normal curriculum time to have a run about and recap some key skills in PE!’

Thank you to John, the Cricket Development Officer,  who was very patient and engaging with the children.
