Numbers were a bit down this week but we had fun none the less as we enjoyed a fantastic last session before the Easter Break.
Ray was absent as well so Alan led the warm up before we got going with some catching practice in pairs. First off we did some bounce passes then we did some throwing and catching without bouncing the ball.
We then moved on to a game of Champion. The group split in to two groups with Ollie leading one game and Alan the other. They throw to each child in turn. If they catch the ball successfully they move up the line. If they drop it then they move to the bottom of the queue. At the end of the game Valentina was Champion in Ollie's group and Charlotte the champion in Alan's group, but there were several kids leading the way at various points during the game.
Before the main break we then did some fielding practice - picking the ball up from a cone and throwing at the stumps.
After the main break we practice batting - hitting the ball off a cone towards the end of the hall as straight as possible. We then went on to play some three tee cricket games. Each player had to hit three balls off of three tees then try and get as many runs as possible before the fielding team put the tees and tennis balls back in to position. Alexander's team won the first game by 47 runs to 42. The second game was a lot closer with Alexander's team scoring 80 runs. The final player for Valentina's team was Alan. He needed 7 runs to win, 6 to draw but only managed 5!!!
At the end of a great session Alan gave each of the kids an Easter Egg for all their efforts over the term. We wish you all a great Easter break and look forward to seeing you back on the 22nd April
