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...

Chicks growing well!

Our six chicks are growing well. They have started to eat and drink and are enjoying playing in the brooder box. Sometimes they run about so much that they exhaust themselves and they fall asleep on the spot - it's very funny to watch. On Friday they were cleaned out for the first time although they weren't very pleased at being put into a cardboard box! 

If you look closely you can still see the egg tooth on the end of their beaks which they use for breaking their shell. This will drop off as they get a little older. There are some new photographs in the gallery, and the chick cam will be on all weekend.

Moving into the Brooder Box

We have had six chicks hatch successfully and today they have moved into the brooder box. They are still quite sleepy and like huddling together under the warm light bulb.

 

At the moment they are not eating much chick feed as they still have food left in their tummies from inside the egg, but they are starting to peck around and show an interest so it won't be long until they are enjoying proper food.

 

This evening we will enable the sound on the webcam so that you can hear them cheeping. Remember to also check the photo gallery for daily update pictures.

Hatching!

Our eggs have been hatching today - it's been very difficult to concentrate on anything else!

 

They stay in the incubator for the first 24 hours after hatching. Their tummies are full from the yolk inside the egg so don't need food or water just yet. They also need time to stay huddled together like they would under the mother hen. 

 

Tomorrow they will start to go into the brooder box - keep an eye on Chick Cam to follow their progress!

 

Next week when they are bigger and stronger the children will be able to handle them. Parents and families will be able to pop in after school with younger siblings to see them after the weekend.

 

There are some photos in the gallery of the progress so far.

Whole School Peter Pan on Ice Trip

Everyone had a fantastic time watching The Russian Ice Stars perform Peter Pan on Ice at the Alban Arena yesterday. It was a magical adaptation of the story told not just 'on skates' but in the air too! We were kept enthralled by the flying, the rope tricks and even fire juggling. Some of the skating tricks were just incredible - and pretty nerve wracking too!

 

All of the children were fantastically behaved throughout the whole performance and I was so proud of them all. When I looked around they were ALL silent, totally transfixed with what they were watching - and there were lots of open mouths!

 

Thank you to parents and families who came to collect children at the end of the day, for parking appropriately to allow the coaches through and for bearing with us while we got all the children into school safely. Our journey had been a little problematic due to a traffic accident in St Albans city centre, hence our slightly later return, and we are very grateful for your patience. 

 

Thank you to all the adult volunteers who helped on the trip - staff, governors and lots of parents. We hope you enjoyed it too.

 

This trip was only possible through the generosity of the PTA who heavily subsidised the event to enable everyone to go. So THANK YOU to the PTA and to all parents and families for supporting the PTA's fundraising efforts throughout the year so that they have the means to contribute so well to our enrichment activities at school.
