This unit of work allows learners to focus on learning and/or further developing on their techniques in cricket; covering fielding, batting and bowling. Pupils will learn about ways of outwitting an opponent in a striking and fielding game; this is represented by a batter striking the ball that deceives fielders and gaining the most runs that can be achieved. Pupils will also be given the opportunity to learn the basic rules of cricket and begin to accurately umpire games independently.
