  • Tag Rugby Competition

    Thu 21 Mar 2024 Shona Inman

    On Thursday 21st March 2024, a group of Year 6 children went to Great Shelford Rugby Club to participate in a tag rugby tournament against 18 other schools.  The tournament was split into a Cup tournament and a Plate tournament and we entered a team into both of these. 


    In the Plate tournament our team were fantastic.  What an enthusiastic, positive group of children.  Their energy never faltered and the way they played together and supported each other was lovely.  It was a pleasure to watch them improve and progress as the games went on.  They won one of their games, drew one and lost two which meant they went through to play for 5th and 6th place.  In the playoff they won significantly so came 5th overall.  


    In the Cup competition, our team won all their games but one.  This meant they finished joint top of their group so it had to be decided on try difference as to who went through to the final.  Unfortunately, The Vine had two more tries than us so we went through to play for 3rd and 4th place.  In the playoff the team were fantastic and won so came 3rd overall.  Again, the team were so passionate and positive, and their skill was a joy to watch.


    Well done to all the children who took part, you really were a credit to the school and I thoroughly enjoyed taking you to the event.  A huge thank you to Miss Kennick, who is one of our trainee teachers, who came to coach the children.  She plays rugby so was able to give the teams helpful tips.  Thank you to all the parents/carers who transport the children to and from the event.  And thank you to Wilf who came as the school mascot for the afternoon.

  • Quick Sticks Hockey Tournament

    Mon 04 Mar 2024 Cath Beal

    Today, HIBPS took two teams of Year 6 pupils to Wilberforce Road to compete in quick sticks hockey. The children most importantly enjoyed the whole morning, despite the weather, and it was clear to see their progression of skills during the course of the series of matches. Taking part were 20 ‘large’ schools from across South Cambridgeshire. Both teams won all their matches in their respective leagues and went through to the premier division finals as part of the top four winning teams across the leagues. Many goals were scored with some outstanding attacking, shooting and defensive play performances cheered on by one of the team members from the sidelines – Charlotte!


    In the finals, both teams played their very best and supported each other throughout. One team won all their matches bar the last one, which they tied after a penalty goal was awarded against them, meaning that they were the tied winners of the event. It was a superb match and extremely tight, with clear talent from both teams. On recount of the goals in the finals however, they were just pipped at the post to come in second, with the other Histon team finishing just behind in bronze position.

    The children’s feedback to the organisers was for more hockey events as they thoroughly enjoyed the experience including the fierce competition!

    If your child is interested in developing their skills in hockey, following their learning in P.E. this half term, there are two main Cambridge hockey clubs: Cambridge City Hockey Club based at Wilberforce Road and Cambridge South Hockey Club at Long Road. We look forward to next year’s hockey players keeping up the good work!

    Finally, a huge thank you to Mr Fallon and to all the parents who transported and supported the children at the event.

  • Antarctica Visitor James Miller

    Thu 29 Feb 2024 Kelly Piper

    On our first day back, Year 2 were lucky enough to be joined by a real life explorer!


    James Miller visited to inspire our new topic of learning in History all about adventurers and explorers. He has spent many months in Antarctica, and was kind enough to share lots of photos with the children, and model some of the (many!) layers you have to wear to keep warm. We learnt all about the air which gets trapped in the layers of ice, and how scientists use this to inform them about the air quality hundreds of years ago, and we were lucky enough to get to feel and listen to the ice ourselves!


    Thank you so much to Mr Miller for joining us and for bringing our new unit of learning alive with such amazing resources.


    Thank you!

  • Penathlon Event at Cottenham Primary School

    Wed 28 Feb 2024 Shona Inman

    On Wednesday 28th February 2024, a group of Year 4 children attended a Penathlon club at Cottenham Primary School.  Penathlon comprises of small skill based games to promote participation, coordination and perseverance.  The games include a variation of skittles, target throw, new age curling and basketball.   All four children who attended from HIBPS enjoyed all the games and were extremely positive about their experience.  They represented the school brilliantly and they definitely loved the squash and biscuits afterwards!


    Cottenham has an established Penathlon club at their school and this is something we are hoping to replicate.  The positive feedback from the children who attended means we are moving forward with our planning in implementing this provision at HIBPS.  


    Well done again to the four children who participated and thank you for your enthusiasm.

  • Young Voices 2024

    Wed 17 Jan 2024 Shona Inman

    On Wednesday 17th January, our choir travelled to the O2 in London to take part in the Young Voices event. 


    Young Voices is a month long event, when each night (at different venues around the country) around 8000 children from school choirs come together to perform in a concert to friends and family. 


    We travelled to the O2 in the morning and then rehearsed with the conductor and band all afternoon to perfect the songs ready for friends and family arriving in the evening. 


    There were special guests at the event including a 13-year-old girl drummer who has performed with the likes of Foo Fighters and the Killers. Her set was incredible and very awe inspiring for the children. 


    The concert itself was a real spectacle and all of the children thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. The lighting, the staging, the sound the voices together made was unbelievable. All the children were up dancing (as were Mrs Inman and Mr Pollard as well as the parent helpers!). It was an credible experience.


    Thank you to the children for being so enthusiastic and for representing the school so brilliantly.

  • Church Visits for the Nativity

    Thu 14 Dec 2023 Shona Inman

    This week, each year group visited St Andrew's Church in Histon to enjoy the Nativity story and to showcase some wonderful singing.  It was lovely for all the children to go out into the community and enjoy the festive season with their peers and adults.  The acting and singing were brilliant so well done to all the children for learning the actions and words.  It was clear that 'We Three Kings' was a favourite!  

    Thank you to St Andrew's Church for welcoming us and thank you to all the parents/carers who helped walk the children to and from the church and then joined us for the service.  

  • Cross Country event at Wimpole Nov 2023

    Wed 29 Nov 2023 Becca Thompson

    It was a lovely sunny, albeit frosty, morning at Wimpole for the South Cambs School Sport Partnerships annual Big Schools Cross Country competition on Wednesday 29th November. Over a thousand children from primary schools across the district enjoyed the event which has now become a highlight of the sporting calendar.


    The children who took part were competing for individual honours and team pride as they raced the 1-mile course and they were cheered on and encouraged by their teammates.


    There were 8 races on the day with a separate boys and girls race for years 3, 4, 5 & 6 with the first three finishers in each race receiving a medal and certificate.


    Our children all performed brilliantly on the day. Derek McKellar came in second in the Year 6 boys race and Eira Eagling came first in the Year 3 girls race.  We are extremely pleased to say that Year 5/6 won the event overall against all of the schools which is a fantastic achievement. A big thank you to all the staff and parents/carers who helped transport, cheer on and encourage everyone on the day.

  • No Pens Day

    Mon 27 Nov 2023 Mrs Batters

    As part of no-pens day Year 3 and 4 children shared books with children from Year 2 classes. The conversations the children had were very positive and we are hopeful that this will have embedded connections across the key-stages which the children will continue to benefit from over the coming years.

  • Diwali Day

    Wed 22 Nov 2023 Miss Burns

    This week, Year 5 loved celebrating Diwali through stories, artwork and cooking.  A particular highlight was an assembly hosted by Eva in 5RB and her Mum, Preeti.  They told us all about the origins of Diwali, brought in decorations from home, and answered lots of our questions about the festival.  During Diwali Day, we also cooked coconut barfi and made devas out of clay.  It was really exciting to share all of our English writing from our text Asha and the Spirit Bird, particularly our tiger monologies, which were very funny.  Thank you to all who came and celebrated with us - we hope you enjoy the photographs from our fantastic day!


  • Netball Tournament at Cottenham Village College

    Tue 31 Oct 2023 Mrs Inman

    On Tuesday 31st October 2023, a group of Year 6 children attended a netball tournament at Cottenham Village College.  We entered three teams into the tournament and all the teams played four games.  The second round of the tournament will take place next year at Impington Village College where the teams will finish the round robin rotation so they have played all the teams entered.  The points will then be collated and the teams with the most points will progress to the School Games Finals.  


    On Tuesday, each team played brilliantly.  The effort and enthusiasm the children displayed was fantastic.  They improved so much as the evening progressed and their passing, marking and shooting was excellent.  The teams won all their games apart from only two where they faced tough opponents and lost both by just one goal.


    Well done to all the children who participated, they are all excited for the next round.  Thank you to all the parents/carers and grandparents who helped transport the children to and from the tournament and supported them while playing.
