The girls in year 6 have received some coaching from the Sussex women's cricket team this term. Below is a report from Maisy, in Graphite class, on what they have been doing:
Diamond cricket is where there are four people batting and a fielding team. A bowler throws the ball to any batter they want to, and once the ball is hit, all four batters move round the diamond. Once you are out, you have to give the bat to the next person in the line.
The year 6 girls had a diamond cricket tournament, with four teams of ten. We played two games and everyone got a chance to play at every position and to play against every team.
The hardest part of the game is when there is only on person left batting, because all you do is run. A few of the last girls standing were: Lillis, Sofie and Tia. Overall everyone had lots of fun!
Thank you to Elizabeth Rigsby, a Sussex women’s cricket coach, who worked with us.
