Chance to Shine Cricket Programme
This term year 1/2 and year 5/6 are taking part in the 'Chance to Shine Cricket Programme'. The Chance to Shine coaches inspire and enthuse the children about the sport of cricket. Their Spirit of Cricket assemblies are a brilliant way to introduce the sport and the values of the game to the pupils. At the heart of cricket are the values of fair play, teamwork and respect. Cricket is an inclusive sport where boys and girls play and develop together.
As well as developing the technical skills of the children and getting them physically active, Chance to Shine use the sport to support the national curriculum through cricket-themed lessons.
Throughout the sessions, coaches use cricket to teach children valuable life skills like teamwork, respect and communication. By focussing on developing the whole child and the achievement of ‘personal best’, our coaches develop the children’s social and mental wellbeing, building their confidence and improving their attitude towards sport.
Today we had a visitor in to teach us all about Hinduism and the story of Rama and Sita which is an incredibly significant tale from the Hindu religion and more specifically the Festival of Light, otherwise known as Diwali.
