Tes has partnered with Chance to Shine to bring you official resources celebrating the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup!
The exciting action is underway now around England and Wales, all leading to the big final at Lord’s on 14 July.
Get your class involved in this huge international event, learn about the world’s best players from the 10 competing teams from all around the globe, follow all the action and take the opportunity for some fun, engaging and topical classroom sessions!
The Cricket World Cup is here! This assembly will introduce the rules of game and get your school excited the tournament with films and quizzes. There is also a simplified version for your school council/ YR 6 or other pupil ambassadors to deliver to their peers.
You can also use our bitesize Cricket World Cup Challenges with your class at any time. These fun challenges include Maths, Science, Geography and English.
This cross-curricular Geography and PSHE lesson can be used across KS1 and KS2. Guidance in the notes section explains how you might differentiate the content for the age group you are teaching.
In this lesson, pupils come up with a way to welcome the players of the ICC Cricket World Cup to England and Wales. They can be as creative as they like – making anything from a poster to a poem or travel brochure.
The lesson can be delivered using the PowerPoint alone or alongside the ICC Cricket World Cup Team Fact Files - available to download on the Resources section of this page.
Please note, the content on this PowerPoint displays best in presentation mode. Before teaching the lesson, you may wish to adapt slides 14 to 17 with images relevant to your local area.
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...
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.
