Students from Frobisher get a taste of big school!



Students from Frobisher Primary School have been working on a special project recently with our very own Mrs Wood, Raising Attainment Coach for English. Since October she has been visiting them at their school to help them rehearse for their production of the Shakespeare play, 'The Merchant of Venice.' 

They have worked on understanding the play in context, as well as deciphering those tricky Shakespearean terms! On Tuesday the pupils' parents and teachers were invited to CCA to see them perform and were extremely impressed. 'We can't believe how confident they were performing a play, the fact that it is Shakespeare is even more impressive!'

Cricket – Chance to shine tournament



CCA’s girls cricket team travelled to Springfield’s cricket ground in Chelmsford to take on the a number of schools in the Chance to Shine Cricket Tournament. The girls faced Becket Keys in their first match. CCA won the toss and choose to field first. With a strong fielding performance CCA were chasing 49 runs; 50 runs off 7 overs and CCA would claim the victory. A solid batting performance by Katie Black and Saffron Heffer saw CCA reach 50 runs before our innings were complete. The Academy claimed the victory! With a rest before our last group game, the girls saw Becket Keys beat St Angelo. A win for CCA would secure their place in the final. CCA batted first this time and scored a whopping 86 runs. Kiera Boyce put on a strong bowling performance taking a wicket in the 4th over. St Angelo came into bat but could only manage 39 runs in 7 overs.

The Academy faced Shenfield in the final, we had faced them before in an indoor tournament and they had beaten us. The girls knew it would be a difficult match but went in with a positive attitude. We batted first and managed 43 runs of 7 overs. Shenfield were the most consistent bowlers that we had faced during the tournament. Shenfield managed 85 runs off their innings. They had won but our girls walked away with their heads held high and a silver medal round their necks.

Well done year 8!
