P5/6 had a visit from Mr Powell from Lorretto School today. First we ran some relay races with a cricket ball to practise and warm up. Then we practised our cricket ball throwing and catching with partners. Next we played a Quick Cricket game which ended in a tie. The most remarkable thing was when Thomas smashed the ball into the basketball net on the other side of the hall. He got an extra 10 points for his team, but none of us could really believe our eyes. Near the end of the lesson we played a fast thinking game of catch with three cricket balls. Everyone really enjoyed it and we hope Mr Powell comes back again.
