This half term, Year 5 are focusing upon cricket. We began the unit by developing our throwing and catching skills and then learning the basic rules involved in a cricket game. We looked at how to hold a cricket bat correctly as well as exploring the aims the batting and fielding teams have. Miss Beaumont was very impressed that some of us managed to score 4's and 6's whilst batting in our first lesson!
Within the unit we went onto learning the correct batting stance and grip alongside the different attacking and defending shot techniques.
We also explored how to bowl overarm and had a target competition in teams.
We finished off the unit by having an intraclass competition!
