Norfolk Cricket Festival May 2018

On Thursday 10th May Mrs Chapman and Mrs Hartley took a group of Year 1 children to the Norfolk Chance to Shine Cricket Festival. The children had a chance to try some of the activities from the All Stars Cricket Programme which is available for children aged 5-8 years.

We got to complete 4 different activities led by cricket coaches and supported by leaders from Northgate High School. The activities helped the children to practise some of the skills needed to play cricket such as bowling, fielding and batting.

All the children had great fun. Isabella said “This is the best cricket ever!” And Bailey said “I’ve never tried that way of throwing the ball before” after they had been introduced to using an over arm throw by starting in a star shape.
