Oh I do like to be beside the seaside!

Thank you SO much to everyone who came along to our seaside Summer Fair this afternoon. There was lots to see, do and win with games, stalls, refreshments and much more. We even had perfect seaside weather too!


A big well done to the children who took part in the creative competition and the cupcake 'Bake Off' - there were some fantastic entries and it made life very tricky for the judges!


A huge thank you to everyone who helped to make the fair such a great success, but especially the PTA committee who have worked tirelessly for the last few weeks and haven't stopped dashing about all day. A well earned rest is definitely in order! We are SO lucky to have such dedicated parents and families at our school and we are very, very grateful for the work that you do.


Watch this space to find out how much was raised. In the meantime, there are lots of pictures in the photo gallery so you an re-live the fun!

Sunday afternoon

This afternoon we have been dragon boating. In three teams we had races and challenges and had to invent different shouts and chants to do in response to commands.

We did different songs too. The red boat won 2 races, the blue boat won 2 and the yellow won one. It was VERY tiring but lots of fun! Miss Patston and Mr Jefferies went in the dragon boats too.

After the boats some of us jumped in the water - we were very wet! We are about to go to camp fire this evening and can't believe it's our last night here! Goodnight everyone!

Sunday morning update

It's a beautiful, warm, sunny day here in Osmington Bay and our morning activities are in full swing.

Last night everyone was very tired after an extremely busy day and the children were fast asleep within minutes of lights-out (some before!)

Today we are spending the morning doing quad bikes, and trapeze; this afternoon we are all dragon boating, so another packed day in store.

Everyone is absolutely fine, just a bit bleary eyed!

Saturday Morning

Despite a stormy rainy night all the children slept well and were up bright and early this morning. It was a grey wet morning as we started our first activity but the sun soon came out and it is now a lovely sunny day.

Today the children are doing kayaking, giant swing, survivor and zip wire. It has been a great day so far.

Boden Shopping & Pamper Evening THIS TUESDAY




Shopping & Pamper Evening




It’s the Boden evening on Tuesday 13th May 7.30 - 9.30pm

Tickets £2.50 in advance (£3 on the night) including a glass of wine. It would be great if you could come along, and better still if you could bring along lots of friends or family who aren’t Boden shoppers too. To make this worth your while, for every new customer you bring who places an order at the party, you will receive £25 credit on your account (maximum four a month) - so it's certainly worth racking your brains for any potential new customers!

If you haven't bought a ticket in advance then please just come along on the night!

The latest news on our chicks

Yesterday we received a lovely email from Mrs Carter about how our chicks are getting on. Our six girls were joined by three from a school in Watford who had also done the Living Eggs project, so they are now all together and have grown a lot! Mrs Carter sent some photographs which are in the gallery.


Here is Mrs Carter's email:


Here are some photos of the chicks. They are in a cold frame inside the big greenhouse and have a lamp on at night. Their feathers are really developing. They are eating like mad and I have to fill their feeder up twice a day. They also need a lot of cleaning out! They have enjoyed having the space to run around and try out their wings. They met the three from a school in Watford and they all get along well. The Watford trio are one week older. We hope to get them out in a house and run in the field as soon as possible but the nights have been too cold so far.
The first two photos are from when they first came here. The next two a little bit later and the last three were taken today.

Well done Footballers!

The football team played amazingly well, representing Hertfordshire at today's ESFA Regional finals in Essex. They had 5 gruelling matches to play and they were fantastic! Although we didn't get through to the next stage of the competition, the team can be VERY proud of their efforts today - it was a fabulous achievement to get this far and show such skill on the pitch. Every child in the team received a medal and we also have a glass trophy for school.


We also took other members of the football club who were brilliant supporters - especially as Edward had made a fantastic banner to wave which really gave the team support and encouragement.


Thank you to all the parents who came along to watch and support; we are really glad you could make it. 


Special thanks must go to Mr Jefferies who has coached the team so well all season, assisted by Mrs Dunnigan and Miss Lean.


Very well done boys, we are extremely proud of you! There are some action shots in the photo gallery.

Monday's Chick Update

The chicks have grown quite a lot over the weekend; they have been eating a lot! Their wing feathers are starting to show now too. They have also taken to sleeping in the food bowl!


In the next couple of days the children in school will be able to handle the chicks and let them have a run around on the floor.

If any parents and younger siblings want to see the chicks then please do pop in after school during this week.

Class 3 Dance Festival last night

Wow! Class 3 were AWESOME at the Sporting Futures Dance Festival last night! The Gordon Craig was packed with children and families and a lot of talent! 


Class 3's routine was to 'Dance with me tonight' by Olly Murs in the style of the 1950's. They were absolutley brilliant and I can't describe how proud I was of them all. They had done a matinee and an evening performance so it was a long day but they behaved fantastically as ever, and did St Ippolyts proud. It was the first time we've taken part in an event like this and I don't think it will be the last if the success of last night was anything to go by. WELL DONE CLASS 3!


A huge THANK YOU to Miss Lean who prepared the class so well for their big moment and to all the other teachers and adults who helped throughout the day and evening. 


Keep an eye on the website for photos coming soon...
