Lesson plan and supporting resources

Introduction 10 minutes
Main Activity 40 Minutes
  • Provide the pupils with the ‘Storyboard for the spirit of cricket - Activity' worksheet and they must work individually or in pairs to draw a storyboard to represent the spirit of cricket in action. This could be anything from apologising after bowling a ball at the batsman's body by accident, not appealing for a catch that hit the ground, etc.
Plenary 10 Minutes
  • Allow the pupils to show their completed storyboards to the rest of the class and the class must guess what part the spirit of cricket has been represented.
  • If time is available and it has not been used yet, use the ‘Who Wants to be a Spirit of Cricket Centurion quiz' and discuss the answers as a class.
