Jonathan Agnew is a commentator on cricket on bbc 5 live sports extra. Mr Agnew talks about many things whilst covering a cricket match, all of which are probably highly relevant in education. For example, in a recent Ashes series - Australia versus England - a test match played at Fremantle, Perth in Australia featured the presence of a prevailing wind, known as "The Fremantle Doctor". That could well be a few minutes of a physical geography, geography /meterology lesson. Then, there are the statistics which cricket has recorded, probably more than other sports. Statistics is a branch of Maths. So, lessons built around scoring and summarising a cricket match would be a very valuable source for practising numeracy. Indeed, the bbc takes it so seriously that they employ a statistician to feed the commentators with statistical information. Then there is the physics. A lot of it is ballistics and projectiles - the cricket ball - and how the players can affect the flight of the ball. "Swing bowlers", such as James Anderson of England, are able to bowl a cricket ball 22 yards so that it swings in the air (aerofoil principle) at speeds approaching 90mph. In fact, it seems to me that a intelligent use of some of Mr Agnew's commentaries, combined with some video images could form a very good basis for Maths, Physics, Geography, and Mr Agnew's version of "harmless waffle" as he sets the scene at any ground, wherever it is in the world. The art of conversation - constrasting vividly with the abrupt "sound bites" which seem to infest "modern day life".
