Blue Team Come First in National Cricket Day Tournament!

Added on by Maple.

All of the children in KS2 enjoyed our annual intra-school cricket competition on the beautiful, sunny morning of Thursday 18.05.17. Again, members of our School Games Crew were brilliant at sorting and organising our teams and supporting the younger children. All of the matches were incredibly exciting and close - with only a few runs between each. It was hard for the adults to choose who demonstrated the best team spirit but in the end it was decided that the Yellow Team were the most deserving of the fair play commendation! Well done everyone!
