Cricket Festival Campbell Park

In a festival against Akeley Wood School last week, our Class 2 children made the most of a lovely sunny afternoon playing cricket at Campbell Park. We fielded four teams and as well as the game play, there were some workshops running – for example, Mr Hall, our MKPS Professional Cricket Coach, ran some bowling workshops using hoops to improve and assist the children’s aim.

Five children received a Player of the Match Award – four from MKPS and one from Akeley Wood. All the children were awarded medals and thoroughly enjoyed an afternoon in the sunshine and fresh air.

Senior Cricket Squads’ Trip to Lord’s

On Friday 17th May, the MKPS Senior Cricket Squads visited Lord’s Cricket Ground.

The morning consisted of a two hour training session with ECB qualified coaches. This included the use of the nets, working on game based scenarios. A bowling machine was used and the children worked on improving a specific element of their batting. Full match practice then followed, allowing the children to apply their newly learned skills in a pressure situation. The children benefited from all elements of practice and will move into the summer term with a clearer idea of their strengths and areas for improvement.

A tour of Lord’s followed after lunch. This included viewing the media centre, where international journalists sit to report on the day’s play. A tour of the Museum then followed, including a history lesson on the Ashes, given by our expert guide, Lionel.

IMG_1927Seeing such legendary names as Shane Warne, Viv Richards and Alistair Cook emblazoned in the Museum will certainly inspire the children to give 100% effort during games lessons/fixtures this term. The children even managed to watch a small passage of play between Middlesex and Leicestershire in the County Championship. This is regarded as the best level of cricket outside the international arena.

Our MKPS children behaved impeccably as always and thoroughly enjoyed their experiences at the home of cricket.

Thank you to the MCC Academy and the MCC Cricket Club for hosting us.

Our First Junior Prep Inter-House Football and Netball

As part of the Sports leaders’ silver award this year, they had to organise a Junior Inter-House tournament for both the girls and boys. They had to warm up their team, coach their own House and referee their own games. The girls’ tournament involved all Year 4 girls and some from Year 3. After a closely contested round robin tournament, Emerson scooped the first victory and became Junior Netball Inter-House Champions!

Junior Football Inter-House Football involved Years 4 and 3 boys and proved to be a very exciting tournament. As the final approached, Emerson and Ravenstone were head to head with the same amount of points. Emerson powered their way into first position, with Ravenstone coming a very close second.
