  • South Cambridgeshire Cross-country races

    Fri 03 Dec 2021

    I was lucky enough to accompany a group of Year 3 children to the South Cambridgeshire Cross Country earlier this week. I was so proud of them all!  Unfortunately our team had been significantly reduced in number due to children self-isolating but the six children that did go all did fantastically well. In the Year 3 boys race out of over 100 children Sam B came 26th and was closely followed by James H in 27th, a fantastic effort. In the year 3 girls race, with a similar number of starters, Thea after a steady start, overtook literally dozens of children to finish an amazing 13th, Klara finished 23rd and Zoey and Nala finished 40th and 41st respectively. It was the first time that almost all of them had ever taken part in a race and clearly they were very nervous. They all did an amazing job and it bodes really well for us competing in future events. Thank you so much to those parents to accompanied us to the event and supported the children so well.

  • Amazing performance of 'The Elves and the Shoemaker'

    Fri 03 Dec 2021 Mr Newman

    We were so lucky to have Andy from Theatre of Widdershin' come to perform 'The Elves and the Shoemaker' for all the children today. We had two separate performances in order to keep the children suitably distanced and the children and adults all had an amazing time. It fitted in brilliantly with Key Stage 1s Design and Technology work on puppets and was a Christmas treat for all of us! Thank you to our amazing PTA for funding this for all the school to enjoy!

  • HIPPS Whole School Cross Country

    Fri 26 Nov 2021

    This afternoon, we held our first ever Cross Country.  Each year group took part in a race led by Mr Newman.  The children impressed us with the determination, resilience and encouragement to others.  The photos below show winners from the races! Good luck to Year Three in the county races next week!

  • Stone Age Day!

    Wed 17 Nov 2021 Jonathan Newman

    As part of their learning about the Stone Age Year 3 were visited by Andy from Theatre of Widdershin. Andy, as always, provided us with a spellbinding mixture of Storytelling and puppetry with lots of Historical information and jokes(both good and bad) thrown in! He recounted the Story of Ug, Dug and Bug, three cavemen brothers searching for fire. The children then had the opportunity to draw and print some 'Cave painting' style pictures. All the children had a fantastic day, learnt a little more History and created some stunning artwork. Go to the Gallery to see some of the wonderful printing that we did!

  • Rex the Dog

    Fri 15 Oct 2021

    We are really pleased to have 'Rex the dog' installed at the front of the school. Rex was at the old Infant School site and he now takes pride of place where he can be seen by everyone who passes the school. An enormous thank you to Mr Boys who came and put Rex up in his rightful place. Some of our Year 2 children can be seen here looking after him!

  • Harvest Celebrations

    Sun 03 Oct 2021

    This week, we were lucky enough to have Tim Blake, the children's minister at St Andrew's Church, in to help us celebrate Harvest.  The children all had the opportunity to share a Harvest song in the assemblies.  It was a milestone moment as it was the first assemblies that we have held in the hall at the Park Primary.  The singing brought a tear to the eye of Miss Moule and Mr Newman!


    The families of the Park Primary amazed us with their generosity and bought in so many donations for Jimmy's Night Shelter.  We filled one of their vans to the brim! Thank you to you all.

  • Science Competition

    Mon 14 Jun 2021

    As part of the visit we had from the Imaging Manager from the Spire Hospital we set a competition to recreate, in whatever form, an internal organ or part of the body. We had some amazing entries including cauliflower brains and eyeballs. We had drawings, models and sculptures. Thank you so much for taking part. See below for some of our fantastic creative entries!

  • Can you scan a shark? What happens if you sneeze in the scanner?

    Tue 01 Jun 2021

    These are just two of the many questions children asked when they received a talk from the Imaging Manager from Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital.

    Alan Rout explained the importance of MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) diagnostic scans, what doctors use them for and how the very strong magnets in the scanner and radio frequency pulses generate signals to produce an image.

    In June, Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital will updating and installing a new MRI scanner. In celebration of the new scanner, the team chose to go and speak to children, aged four to seven years, at their local school about MRI scanners.

    Alan explains:

    “Histon and Impington Infant School recently opened and is the closest school to our hospital. We thought it might be a good idea to share a bit of our knowledge with the children. It was a wonderful opportunity to show Science in practice and give them an insight into the human body. Being able to show parts of their body they can’t actually see clearly fascinated some of them.”

    Mr Dando, who is our Science Leader explained:  

    “Being based in Cambridge, many of our children have parents who work in Research, Science or Medicine so I was expecting quite a few to have an interest in the scanner and the images. They loved the sessions and being shown what their organs and skeleton look like. Alan also showed us movies of scans through the cross sections of different fruit!  It was all accompanied by an excellent explanation from one of our local experts.”
