Big Hitters

The Under 8A boys had a fantastic afternoon of cricket today. They were up against the normally fearsome St Andrews team from Pangbourne. However, to Mr Cluett’s delight, our boys were on top form and recorded a convincing win.

With some great bowling and fielding from every single Holme Grange player, St Andrews we kept to a very low total of 25 runs. Then we came out to bat and played an array of devastating shots and big hits. Again, everyone contributed and we ended up winning with a whopping total of 99 runs. Well played boys!

There was also plenty of other sporting success this afternoon. The rest of the Year 3 boys went over to St Andrews and played some superb cricket and the Year 3 girls had a great win in their rounders matches against Bishop’s Gate School.

It is so good to see all the Year 3 children representing their school so happily and proudly on a sunny afternoon, congratulations!

They may get cheered by everyone in their school but your the ones that should really be clapped and cheered by everyone in the town! Three cheers for the U8 boys. Hip hip hooray! Hip hip hooray! Hip hip hooray! And one for the best ever play. Hip hip hooray!

    Well done Boys! Dr Livingstone, the head at St Andrew’s always talks to me about our sports teams when I see him. He really enjoys watching our schools compete and I can see why. I am very proud.
