Teachers have been creating videos focusing on certain sports for pupils to learn from and develop specific skills, such as rugby, hockey and netball, as well as taking part in fun challenges.

Steve Goldsmith, cricket coach at the school, is one of those teachers and has decided to focus on two key skills: bowling and batting.

In the bowling video, Mr Goldsmith talks through the different ways on handling the ball, as well as offering tips on aligning your body when at the crease.

He also advises pupils to watch Norwich-born and Warwickshire bowler Olly Stone’s technique, but Mr Goldsmith said that “I would suggest you try it (bowling) from a side-on position with everything lined up. Stay safe everybody.”
