YEAR 5/6 GIRLS' CRICKET

On Tuesday 26th April. 10 of the year 5/6 girls had the opportunity to visit Keswick School and meet Kate Cross, England cricket bowler.

We did lots of different skills activities and we were able to ask Kate some questions. We were amazed that she hadn't been playing professionally for very long. When she was younger she had to play on boys' teams because there were no girls' teams available. She wants to bring cricket to girls. We enjoyed listening to her inspirational story.

We also met Georgia Hendy from Australia who is here for six months.

PE and Healthy Lifestlyes at Frizington Primary

Our school provides a minumum of 2 hours of PE every week, as well as 10 minutes of fun fitness exercise twice a day, lunchtime activities and a variety of afterschool clubs.

At Frizington we work alongside sports coaches (Onside Sport) to plan and deliver high quality P.E lessons for all year groups. They also run an after school session to help increase pupil participation in sporting activities.

Included in our sports facilities is a large sports hall, two large areas of playground as well as a substantial playingfield.

Our school aims to promote a healthy lifestyle within breakfast club where children can enjoy a healthy choice of foods to help them start the day, as well as a 10 minute shake up activity that is part of the change for life scheme.

Children are also encouraged to use the salad bar at lunchtimes to ensure they have a balanced meal. They are also encouraged to take part in 'Mile on Monday' or 'Trek on Tuesday' where children run or walk a mile, or futher if they wish, around the playground.
