Chance to Shine Schools Portal

The Chance to Shine charity – which aims to grow cricket in state schools – has helped introduce 3.5 million children to the game since 2005.

To continue to grow this number they have launched a Schools Portal to support Key Stage 1 & 2 delivery. It has been created in partnership with the Youth Sport Trust. As well as helping pupils develop their physical literacy skills the resources include classroom-based lessons to develop numeracy and literacy. The resources – which are for both Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils – also aim to support the development of important character traits.

To find out more about the new schools programme please watch the video below:
