Yesterday Ecton Brook held a cricket competition against 3 other schools, Lings, Thorplands and Standens Barn.
The children were sweltering in the hot sun and water bottles were being constantly replenished.
Even though Ecton Brook did not win any of their matches, their skills grew and they are now more knowledgeable of the game, well done to the team.
This afternoon Natalie Lawrence from Northamptonshire Sport came into Ecton Brook to teach children how to long jump.
The children’s skills improved as they tried to master the long jump, standing still long jump and the triple jump.
This morning Year 5 were treated to some cricket coaching by Nick Baker.
The children learnt to catch, throw and they managed to play a brief game of ‘ Diamond Cricket’ all in their first lesson.
Nick will be in school for the next 5 weeks teaching cricket to the KS2 children.
After school today 4 children from years 3/4 went to play in a tennis competition.
Having never played tennis before the children were very nervous about the task ahead.
Confidence grew with every game, serves started going in and eventually we won some games.
The children did both themselves and Ecton Brook proud, well done.
Yesterday the year 5/6 Girls took part in a football competition at Kingsthorpe Grove.
So many schools turned out with their team of girls. It was nice to watch the skill level, pace and drive that the teams showed.
Ecton Brook won one game, drew one and lost two, a very good effort by the girls.
