Yr6 Cricket Competition
On Tuesday, our Cricket team travelled to Chiswick Community School, to compete against other schools. The competition was divided into two groups, with only the group winners from each side qualifying to the Borough finals. This team had been training for this competition for several weeks and they really showcased their skills in the first two matches, winning both, with some outstanding batting, bowling and fielding. Our final match was against a much stronger opponent who chose to bat first and managed to record an outstanding total of 81 runs! This meant we were facing a huge challenge to win our match and finish top of the group. However, our team demonstrated some amazing skills, teamwork and determination to get ourselves back in contention with one over to go. Our last batsman was George, who knew he needed to gain 8 runs, without losing any. The pressure was on, but George relished it and stepped up to hit three sixes and a four to win the match and ensure we qualified as group winners. Huge congratulations to the team for the determination, skills, teamwork and sportsmanship they showed throughout!
