Charlotte Edwards, CBE, Captain of the England cricket team visits Much Birch!
On Wednesday 2nd July we were visited by Charlotte Edwards, CBE, captain of the England cricket team. She participated in a practice session run by Anna Robertson who coaches many of our children as part of the Chance to Shine programme, designed to improve cricket skills in primary schools.
Children from Years 4, 5 and 6 were able to take part in this session where Charlotte both bowled and batted. At the end of the practice they had an opportunity to ask questions as well as collect Charlotte’s autograph. It was an unforgettable afternoon, appreciated by both children and staff.
