Girls Cricket. Monday 3rd June 2019 @ Spikes Bridge Park
Our first game in Spikes Bridge Park was against a team wearing red (S.T John’s Primary School) and in my opinion they were quite good at fielding. We received 256 runs whereas they received 219 so we beat them by 37 runs! Our penultimate game, against Little Ealing, was not as jolly as the last. They beat us by an unknown amount of runs, but I am positive that it was more than twenty, they were excellent at cricket. As a matter of fact, they won and came first place out of all the teams.
After our second game, Mr Coakley allowed us to have a snack so that we had energy for the rest of the day. It was when we were eating when we heard the booming sound of, “COME IN, COME IN!!!!!!” The host of the tournament was calling all the teams in with his loud, deafening voice. That was when we found out that we hadn’t reached the semi-finals and that we only had one more game left to play.
We digested our lunch and then walked over to the pitch were we had our game. Our last game was against North Primary School. We also lost that game by 10 runs, it was a close call. We then walked back to school, which marked the end of our tournament.

Year 5 & 6 Cricket Tournament
24.05.19 @ Spikes Bridge Park
Yesterday we went to Spikes Bridge Park for this year’s cricket tournament. Before it started, we felt confident and like champions because of encouragement from Mr Coakley and Mr Dowden. When we arrived, we spent some time doing some last minute practice before our first game.
In our first game, we played really well. We made a lot of catches, did some really good bowling and got plenty of 4s and 6s. In our second game we continued to play really well however we ended up getting overconfident. This meant that kept going for the boundary which meant the other team kept catching the ball. We ended up losing by one run but learnt not to hit the ball in the air and most importantly to work as a team. In our final match, we played the team that ended up winning the silver medal. Despite playing against a very good team, we improved on our mistakes from the previous game and played well as a team.
It was a great day and we enjoyed testing what we had learnt in our PE lessons against other schools.
