Chance to Shine cricket activities

With England v India being shown on Channel 4, there’s never been a better time to get young people inspired by cricket! We hope that you and your pupils can join us to get active and build those cricketing skills.

If pupils aren’t able to join in live, the session will be available to watch back in the same place.

The scorecard is available to download below: 

 

 

Thanks once again to all of those who joined our live session this week. It’s brilliant to see lots of familiar names getting shout outs in the sessions and seeing new schools join every week as well. We received the following feedback from Marian Fleet, a teacher in Cannock, Staffordshire:

“Just to let you know that our Year 4 key worker/vulnerable children have been participating in the Chance to Shine online sessions on a Wednesday afternoon (in school). They are loving it! Very enthusiastic group including some children who are not always big fans of PE and sport participation - these sessions are winning them over to the idea of playing cricket. Thank you!”

This is the session from Wednesday 3 February. It was a Brilliant Bowler session and will support pupils to improve throwing skills linked to bowling, improving accuracy.

The activities can be completed indoors and to take part you will need:

9 items to use as targets, something that won't break like plastic cups or empty tubs, drink coasters

A ball or a rolled up pair of socks

A target. A set of stumps or a rubbish bin

Ideally, those taking part will have a space of around 3 metres to bowl across.

The session will be streamed on our YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/LXaOhzKQrmg. Subscribe to our channel to receive alerts when we go live in the future by clicking here.

If pupils aren’t able to join in live, the session will be available to watch back in the same place.
