An Afternoon of Sport

Lacrosse and Cricket Stars Shine!

This half term the children have been enjoying Pop Lacrosse in their PE lessons. As a new sport, the children have jumped right in, picking up rules and techniques as they go. Being an invasion game, the children have continued to develop their awareness of using the whole space on the pitch and have been showing great progression when playing matches at the end of the lesson.

Additionally, this afternoon all year 6 classes had a cricket session run by a coach from Aldershot Cricket Club. Starting with a quick warm up, the children were quick on their feet to practise their ball handling skills. We then went straight into a game, with the class teacher as the bowler! However, some of us teachers may be banned next time as we kept bowling the children out in quick succession! To the end the lesson, the children had to think fast during a game of catch to determiner who would be the master catcher in their class! Our cricket sessions continue next Friday afternoon, so please make sure PE kits are in school.
