ICC Cricket World Cup - Create a Character

This lesson will introduce the ICC Cricket World Cup Values and offer opportunities to discuss how they impact on more than just sport.

It will also offer an opportunity for your pupils to design a character based on one of these values.

Guidance on creating a character:

The character can be human, animal or even alien. Creativity is encouraged.

It must demonstrate one of the six ICC Cricket World Cup Values.

The character can link to cricket in some way, but it does not have to.

It is anticipated that the initial classroom discussions will take around 15 minutes, allowing time for the design of their character in the rest of the lesson.

ICC Cricket World Cup - Celebrate Cricket

This lesson is designed to be used with KS1 & KS2 pupils. In this lesson, pupils will:

  • Recap on the six Values of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
  • Learn about how players from around the world embody the Values.
  • Reflect on how they demonstrate the Values in their own lives.
  • Join together to celebrate the ways in which they, and their peers, champion the Values.

What will you need?

The Player Cards can be used in a variety of ways:

To develop pupils’ comprehension. Can they explain which Value(s) their player represents? Can they find evidence to justify their thinking?

As a fun ‘top trumps’ style maths game. Can they use their player’s stats to collect all 10 cards and win the game?

The Values Diary can be used alongside this lesson to help pupils record how they have championed the Values (see slide 21 for information on how these might be used).

The Values Certificates can be awarded to pupils who have displayed the Values.

All of these documents can be downloaded from the Resources section

KS3 Cricket Maths Worksheet

A KS3 worksheet using Cricket as the focus (cross-curricular opportunity). Worksheet has information about the game so no prior knowledge is necessary. When I used this worksheet I began with a starter activity using enough dice for paired challenges. Each student would roll their die at the same time as their challenger. The person to add the two numbers together and give an answer got the point, or 'run'. They played first to 10 runs although you could use different cricket concepts to sort out timing of the starter. For example, 6 rolls only, or 2 innings of 6 rolls each etc... Enjoy!

The Maths twenty twenty Cricket Challenge

Presentation developed in response to a group of non responsive students who had an interest in cricket. After an initial introduction the presentation was uploaded to individual workstations and pupils were set a number of mathematical investigation tasks based on the result of a 20 : 20 cricket match. Pupils worked individually and in small groups with minimal supervision over a number of lessons and used the activity to springboard their own investigations. There are a number (10) of set tasks at the end of the presentation that required pupils to use a range of mathematical skills. The presentation contains 45 slides. Click on the umpire to launch the presentation.
