Year 4 Cricket Success

Year 4 entered Swanage Cricket Club’s Annual school competition determined to bring the trophy back to school for a second time.

Although a little disheartened when they saw the opponents were mainly year 5 and 6 pupils, they battled on and won two of their first three games. This saw them in the final against St Mark’s. We batted first and saw numerous 4s and 6s flying through the boundaries in all directions, reaching an awesome 296 at the end of the innings. Our fielding carried on in a spectacular fashion with many wickets being taken at the stumps. St Mark’s played well but couldn’t reach our total.

Well done to the team for bringing back the trophy!

St Mary’s First Ever Hardball Cricket Match

Eight Year 5 and 6 pupils travelled to Parley to represent the  school in the Dorset Under-11 Hard Ball Pairs Competition.

They all played well, showcasing excellent sportsmanship and team spirit.

Unfortunately they were not victorious, but they should all be very proud of their performance.
