Year 3/4 Big Schools Cross Country
23 of our Year 3/4 children headed to the Big Schools Cross-Country at Wimpole where 23 schools took part. Miss McStea and Miss Poulter were so proud of everyone’s focus and determination. Mr Newman was there with the Brook and alternated his cheers between Brook and Park! We found out on Thursday afternoon, once all the points were added, that HIPPS came 3rd overall in the Year 3/4 races. We are SO proud of them because each person’s determination and enthusiasm helped to achieve this-well done team! Four members of the team have written a report about their involvement in the competition which you can read below.
On Wednesday 30th November, Miss Mcstea, Miss Poulter and Mrs Smith took us to Wimpole for the cross-country. We were picked by the teachers from the mini-marathon. There were two races for each year with one for boys and one for girls. Each race had 120 children in. There were over 900 children there! The race was 1 mile around Wimpole. It was a bit muddy and the grass was slippery. We saw some children fall over during the races! All of our team completed the races without getting hurt. Everybody was determined, resilient and cheered on their team mates especially when we knew it was hard for them. The team were really proud of Ataiah who came 1st in the Year 3 girls race. It was a great day but we were all really nervous especially the people who had not been before. When we got back to school, everyone was so proud of us.
