On behalf of everyone at St Ippolyts C of E Primary School, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to you and your family. Our website aims to give you an insight into the life of our school and illustrate what makes St Ippolyts School special to those who teach, work and learn here.

Founded in 1847, St Ippolyts Primary is a Voluntary Aided Church of England School enjoying strong links with St Ippolyts Church and within the Diocese of St Albans. Our principal aim is to provide the best possible education for each individual child, underpinned by Christian Values.

We believe that each child is unique and we seek to provide academic, emotional, social and spiritual support for each one, working in partnership with parents and families. We want our children to be spirited individuals who embrace challenge, think creatively, value achievement and strive to be the best they can be. We encourage each of our learners to actively contribute to our community and to support others.

At St Ippolyts we strive to provide a broad and stimulating curriculum, full of opportunities to excite and motivate our children. We foster relationships built on mutual respect and care for each other and we are extremely proud of all that goes on here.

If you would like to visit us to see our wonderful children in action, you would be most welcome; please telephone the school office to make an appointment and I would be delighted to show you around.

Homework:   Please learn your lines and dances so you are confident and ready for our class assembly on Friday.   Kiera: During his years at school, Cadbury, the chocolate company, would send boxes of new chocolates to the school to be tested by the pupils. He used to dream of inventing a new chocolate bar that would win the praise of Mr. Cadbury himself, and this was the inspiration for him to write his third book for children, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Stir Up Sunday In Collective Worship today we talked about ‘Stir Up Sunday’ and the tradition of making Christmas Puddings on the last Sunday before the start of Advent. Lots of children were able to help out as we made our very own Christmas Pudding and then every child in school had a turn at stirring it. It is now ‘resting’ and will be steamed by Mrs Harrington Smith so that all the children can have a taste if they would like to.   In previous years the recipe has proved very popular so we thought you might like to know the ingredients...

This week in Class One, we started our topic of 'dinosaurs', which is due to continue next week and possibly the week after. On Monday, we came back from lunch to discover a large nest in our class with a huge egg!  Using our investigative skills, we decided that the egg must belong to a dinosaur and so this week, we have all become paleontologists and have been researching lots about dinosaurs, to decide which type is inside.
