Elite Cricket Coaching with James Foster

On Saturday, 20th February Tristen, Krishan, Sheni and I were invited to Forest School Cricket Suite to have professional cricket training with James Foster.

This was a great opportunity for us to practice and learn new skills from a professional cricketer in a small group of 16 children from local schools.

James Foster gave us coaching on bowling, fielding and batting which really helped us all to improve our cricket skills.

Next term when we start the cricket season we will make sure we put all we have learned in to our games lessons and competitions.
