It is summer - it is time for cricket!

On Monday 20th May, a team of talented, young criketers attended a cricket tornament at Hursely Park Road Cricket club. The weather was on our side, and the children hit some fantatic 4s and even some 6s. The bowling and level of play was fantastic; the children got some wickets, caught out a few players from other teams and made some great runs. Because of the highly skilled play, the mixed team of Year 4/5/6 made it to the semi final. Every child finished with a smile on their face and a new T-shirt. 

This was the first of our cricket competitions. This week, on Monday 3rd June, another group of talented cricketers attended a cricket tornament at Hursely Park Road Cricket club. None of the girls in the team play cricket outside of school for a club, and some hadn't played since Year 4, but, nonetheless, there was some fantatsic bolwing, some great runs, some excellent hitting - again scoring some 4s. The team had a fantatsic day in the sun and assured me they enjoyed every game they played. 

Both teams showed respect towards each other and other teams; cooperation by communicating, working together and supporting each other; resilience and persistence during the matches and every child had the confidence to represent Stanmore Primary School .
