Yesterday we had a cricket skills lesson with Steve from Otago Cricket.

He taught us lots of things to catch a ball. You should cross your pinkies over to keep your hands together and then close them like a book when the ball lands in there.

We warmed up with a game of snowball tag. We played non stop cricket - half of us were batting and half of us were fielding then we switched over.

It was a fantastic time - we loved it. Thank you Steve!
