The school cricket teams have been working hard on their batting, bowling, throwing and catching skills . This term, they got to put on their whites and compete against other schools in the town. Well done to all that competed.
Last Wednesday, Simon de Senlis cricket team took part in a tournament with eight other schools. We played a game against Boothville – which was a very close game- but unfortunately we lost. However, we won against Thorplands and by a lot of runs.
After that we had to play Lings and Briar Hill. Fortunately we beat them both, which led to us being 4th in the whole tournament. The games that we played were extremely close, even though one of the Briar Hill players bowled and hit one of our batters on the head.
We played with determination and reassured each other that we could succeed. Although we beat: Lings, Thorplands and Briar Hill, we still congratulated the other teams. On Friday, Mr Prosser ( the teacher that took us to the tournament) gave the team a special mention in celebration assembly.
