KS3 Girls’ Cricket Day
KS3 pupils receive training from the Cheshire Cricket Board:
On Tuesday 6th June, Year 8 and Year 9 girls started the term by participating in a cricket workshop. Jessica Lewis from the Cheshire Cricket Club hosted a fun training day. Although the girls were originally meant to visit Cheshire Cricket Club to practice their skills, they were diverted into the school’s sports hall due to unfavourable weather conditions.
Throughout the day, the eager group of around 40 participated in many different activities, starting with simple skills practice before break. Periods 4 and 5 were spent playing simplified, suitable cricket games in a competitive situation. The final game, which encouraged teamwork, tested the girls’ agility and concluded the day on an exciting note.
We, and the all the girls that participated, would like to thank Jessica for teaching us some new skills that we can pursue and use in other sports, despite the challenging weather!
