Cricket

 

NHIJS  Under 9A              297 off 15 overs

Ratcliffe  College             204 off 15 overs

NHIJS win by 93 runs

In the haze of the sun’s rays at Valley Road, visiting parents were once again entertained to some glorious cricket from our ever-improving Under 9’s.

Fielding first, the data of six wickets, one wide and one no-ball paints a picture of progress of which the team can be justly proud. Saketh bowled a maiden whilst Adit, Arun, Euan, Fletcher and Taran conceded only one run from their respective overs. Our wicket-takers – Arun, Euan, George, Saketh, Sasmeet and Taran – all worked hard to vary their line and length, whilst learning to follow through in their bowling actions.

Developing implicit understanding, both Euan and George combined effortlessly as they interchanged between bowling and keeping; their efficiency and accuracy in both aspects has been one of the many highlights of the season so far.  With Ratcliffe’s total of four added to the original 200, NHIJS had provided themselves with an enviable platform from which to commence their batting.

One of our batting targets has been to learn when to play defensively, rather than conceding costly wickets through constant attack of every delivery. Pleasingly, our loss of only three wickets, compared to six against Foremarke Hall two days ago, signified further steps forward in their understanding of the game. Our top-scorer was Euan on 17, including 3 well-judged boundaries; debutant Arun made 14 and scored 3 boundaries while Sasmeet and Joshua both contributed 10.

Our band of supportive and appreciative parents have certainly contributed to the pupils’ enjoyment of the games played this half-term. Hill House are our next opposition on the first day back after half term and, as we seek to extend our unbeaten run, the pupils will probably want to practise their cricketing skills during the break.

Mrs R Slater

The Under 9B Team won their Cricket match against Hill House in some tricky conditions on Monday. The strong winds made it particularly difficult for bowling and both teams struggled with their accuracy in this department with many wides and no balls accounting for the scoring. Hill House batted first and completed their innings on 239 runs with only Millen R and Sahibdeep T able to take a wicket each and Henry S reacting quickly to run out the opposition batsman. Some excellent batting saw Matthew M pick up two runs early on but Hill House also giving away many wide and no balls which limited the opportunities for our batsmen to score. The decisive pairing came from Michael S-Gand Marley P who had already done well in their first innings so went in to bat for a second time for the last over. They each hit three 4’s in total with a few single runs in between. This would make all the difference in a low scoring game.

The final score was Hill House 239 runs to Nottingham’s 264 runs. Excellent effort and great sportsmanship from both teams.                                                                          Mr M Crossland

A similarly good result for the U8As in their only fixture of the term. Despite the difficult conditions they batted with aggression and scored 279 (pairs cricket rules saw them start on 200 runs) off of their 10 overs giving the opposition a big total to chase. The boys then bowled accurately to prevent the opposition from scoring many runs resulting in a comfortable 32 run victory. Roman E top scored with 13 runs hitting three 4s. Stuart H and Aarya S both bowled brilliantly only conceding 2 runs of their overs.

An encouraging, if wind swept, afternoon!                                                                 Mr C Cordy

With the U9A’s also winning, a clean sweep!

Running
We wish the very best of luck to Thomas B who has decided to run 100km over the summer to raise money for Alzheimer’s Research UK.  Thomas loves running so decided to sign up for the campaign ‘Running down Dementia’ – to keep up-to-date with his progress please visit : https://runningdowndementia2017.everydayhero.com/uk/Thomas-11.  He’s keeping a diary of his runs and update on how much he’s raised on this page.  He is going to run the 5k and 2k Parkrun’s every week as well as any other training runs he can fit in and aims to have done at least 100km by the time he comes back to school in September.

Physics Challenge at the Senior School

Yusuf B, Shlok S-B, William H and James B took part in a Physics Challenge at the Senior School on Tuesday. They had a great day and came 2nd out of 17 in two challenges – the quiz and the Tower building challenge. They enjoyed the day and were a credit to the school. Mr Robson – Head of Physics said they were very well behaved indeed and worked well as a team. Please see Mrs Sethi to receive an honour point for their efforts. Well done!

Chess
Championship League match against Abbey Road

NHIJS have won the Championship League after winning this game, 7-1!  The last time U11 won this league was back in 2014.

Prior to tonight’s game we needed to win 5 out of the eight matches to win the league. They all played outstanding chess and looked very comfortable. They played steadily and most played for over forty five minutes – Zayan’s match, which he won, was outstanding and took an hour and eight minutes!

Well done to all players who took part this year.
