Year 6 v Parents/Staff Cricket and Rounders
The weather was perfect and the children were very excited to take on the mighty parents and staff teams. This year, two Kwik Cricket and Rounders matches took place and they were all close contests. In the first Cricket match the children batted first and smashed the bowling attack to all parts of the field. They scored 266 runs from their overs. A tough test for the parent/staff team. In truth, they did not start very well losing plenty of wickets, that was until Mr Irwin came to the crease and accelerated the scoring. However, it was not enough as they finished on a total of 252 runs from their overs. In the second match the children also batted first and batted well scoring 243 runs from their overs. The parent/staff team once again started slowly with Mr Strickland being bowled 1st ball by his son. However, Mr Mackenzie and Miss Arman were to come and with some big hitting and frantic running got the score close. However, once again it was not quite enough as they could only score 235 runs.
In the Rounders match much fun was had. The children once again came out on top to make it 3-0 to Year 6. Next year the staff and parents’ team will have to up their game! Well done to all who took part and made it a lovely afternoon of sport.
Wednesday 10 July
U11 House Cricket
On Wednesday the House Captains took charge of their teams to compete in the House Rapid Fire Cricket competition. Every member of each house was involved in playing at least one match. There was excellent support from the side lines and good teamwork displayed all afternoon. The event came down to a deciding match between Sycamore and Beech. Winner takes all! Well on this occasion it was Sycamore who won and closed the gap on Beech in the overall league standings. With only a few events left to play, the challenge is, can anyone catch up with Beech to earn the brand new Davis Sport House Cup on Speech Day?
During the school holidays the U11 Quicksticks team will be competing at Polo Farm in the South East Kent School Games competition. A tremendous effort to get through to this stage and they will be competing against schools from Sussex and Surrey. If you would like to come along and support the team, then you are always welcome.
