U8 & U9 Boys' Cricket v RGS Springfield

On Tuesday, a combined Year 3 and 4 cricket team took on RGS Springfield. In a super match that focused on developing skills and understanding rather than the score, I was delighted with how all of the players progressed. Every single player had a go at batting and bowling and all made good strides forward with both of these skills. I was so proud to see the team working outside of their comfort zones and not being afraid to give things a go, despite not being too confident before the game. Well done, everyone.

U9 Boys' Cricket v Winterfold 

A very pleasing team performance saw KSA U9 'A' beat a strong Winterfold team by 17 runs (256 – 239).

Notable displays from Fabian (good running between wickets) with Arthur and Luke taking key wickets to keep KSA in charge of the match.  The team displayed good batting discipline with KSA losing 1 wicket and Winterfold losing 5 wickets. 

Great job, boys – we're very proud of you.

Mr Benham

U10 Boys' Cricket v Springfield

A very good team performance saw KSA U10's beat RGS Springfield by 32 runs (272 – 240) in a sun-kissed match.

Captained well by Louis, they performed well with the bowling and fielding, especially against some strong RGS batters. After his long term injury, it was good to see Pranav back playing too!

Rounders v RGS The Grange

We had 2 excellent rounders fixtures against RGS The Grange on Tuesday and the girls have written their own match reports –

U8 A Team

We all liked taking part and trying our best in the rounders today.  When it was half time the score was 5 1/2 all. We 'risked it for a biscuit' to make a lot of rounders in the second innings. We all batted well and scored 7 1/2 rounders in our second innings and won 13 – 11. We then enjoyed a lovely tea with RGS at the end and we got to know everybody and it was fun to play in the game and learn new skills.

U8 & U9 B Team

Maheen enjoyed playing on fourth post as she was able to stump people out. Ottilie didn't enjoy her fielding position as they did not hit the ball to where she was fielding but she did enjoy batting. Flo scored a rounder. We all enjoyed it and Molly was captain.

U9 Rounders Tournament

The girls had a lovely afternoon at the King’ Hawford U9 rounders tournament on Tuesday. They played 5 matches with some close finishes and a well earned final win against the Elms. The girls improved no end as the afternoon progressed culminating in a really lovely last match for them. They were able to hit the ball and then make their own decisions about when to run. Our highest scorer of the day was Martha with 4 rounders. Well done all, some great experience for you to take forward to further your rounders career.

Girls' Cricket v Winterfold 

The Year 5 girls played their first cricket match of the term against Winterfold on Wednesday in the glorious sun. We were delighted with their performance and they impressed us with the cricket skills they have acquired at cricket club this year. The girls have written their own match reports –

U10 A Team

Today was an amazing day of cricket for the A team. Matilda was the captain. It started with us fielding, with Tilly bowling first and Olivia as wicket keeper. They both did really well and Tilly got two wickets. Everybody bowled and fielded well. Then it was half time and it was our turn to bat. First up was Tilly and Olivia. Both hit the ball over the boundary to score 4's. Olivia, Clarisse, Izzy and Fen all hit 6's. Fen was player of the match. We won by 20 runs!

U10 B Team

Our first match was against Winterfold. Esther was player of the match and she got two people out. We thought we played quite well but we lost by 37 runs. Their batters hit the ball nearly every ball. Our players did not take enough risks with their running but their players did to make more runs. It was a lot of fun for our first cricket match.

Yr 3 and 4 Swimming Gala

The children had a lovely gala against RGS The Grange. There were some children who had not swum before and overcame their nerves to not just do one race, but three. Special congratulations to those children. The gala was very close all the way through. There was some impressive diving by George and some photo finishes at the end of races, with each child wanting to win. However we managed to pip RGS The Grange to the post and win 108 – 104 points. Well done all!
