Friday 23 April 2010



Friday afternoon, and my class walked up to the field for a Cricket Coaching session. The coach was teaching them to catch, he explained the importance of holding hands close together when catching [so the ball doesn't slip through] and pulling the ball into your body.

Then we did underarm and overarm throwing. Then he sat them on the grass and did a Q&A session about what had been taught.

"And what happens when we put our hands together?"

and at least two little voices responded, without a trace of irony

"We close our eyes, Coach"

I muttered to the child next to me "I think he is talking about playing not praying!"

children pray


  1. Sweet little ones, they have it right even if it's not at the right moment. Have a great weekend!
