Phase 3-4 World War II Exhibition Morning

Some of the most popular activities we have are our exhibitions. Originating with an idea we had years ago, it is an event which is unique to Stepney Primary. We always have a great response from parents, both in their attendance at our exhibitions and in the many kind and positive comments that are made on our questionnaires. Both of these are very much appreciated by staff and pupils. It’s great to have the wonderful blend of learning, creativity and fun that these sessions bring. This mornings’ was no exception. We were overwhelmed by the many keen parents who joined us for year 3 and 4’s WWII exhibition. They made paper poppies for our very own ‘Weeping Window’ poppy displays and VE Day bunting to adorn classrooms.

Below are all the comments received from our guests (pupils' names have been replaced with 'XXX'):

Appointments Reminder
Please may we urge all parents to make medical appointments for children outside of school hours if at all possible or at the start or end of the school day. We seem to have an increasing number of pupils who are going out during the school day, which is    disrupting their learning. We realise it is not always easy getting appointments but hope you will help us in this respect. If you do have to take children out you must bring proof of appointment or we will not be able to authorise the absence.

Attendance - Lateness
Also, if pupils are late into school, they will not have their names put forward to our attendance prize draws. Children should be here at school before 8.45am so that they ready to go into school.

Easter Disco
This will be on Thursday 6th April (3.15pm to 4.15pm). A £2 entrance fee includes a free drink and a small egg. There will be prizes for the best costume and hat plus an Easter egg hunt game. Excitement is already growing as we know pupils love these events.

Comic Relief Day

We have had another successful Comic Relief Day. Over the last two weeks, pupils have loved buying ‘Red Noses’ and today, we all came dressed in red and buying buns to raise money for this important cause. Even though our school uniform is red, it still gave everyone the chance to find even more red clothing!

Stepney at BBC Look North
The Third Children’s University event of the week saw ten pupils from years 5 & 6 going to the BBC Look North Studios in Queen’s Gardens. They went to make their own mock Look North programme, using footage that they have been filming at the Hull City of Culture 2017 events this year. They had a wonderful time in the actual studio either sitting in Peter Levy’s chair and presenting the programme or working back stage in the control booth, filming and editing the programme. It was a memorable event that will certainly stick in the pupils’ minds for a long time to come!

Year 5 Visit the Port

Year 5 went on a Hull Children’s University visit to King George Dock, where they went on board one of the massive P&O ferries. Following a welcome, the class divided into two groups, taking it in turns to have a behind-the-scenes tour around the ship and undertake some writing and drawing tasks. In the afternoon, they had a coach tour around the Port with a team from ABP giving an interesting running commentary. It was a fantastic day with pupils learning all about the port.

Year 6 Visit BAE
Meanwhile, year 6 went on another Children’s University visit to British Aerospace in Brough. They had an introduction to this huge factory, then split into groups to tour the Manufacturing and Mission Systems areas. After lunch, they had a ‘Forces of Flight’ presentation before an afternoon of activities. The day concluded with a quiz, feedback from the visit plus goodie bags and certificates. It was an excellent event and opened our pupils’ eyes to engineering.

Governors Tour Stepney

This afternoon, Lee Morfitt, our Chair of Governors and members of our School Pupil Council, had the honour of showing governors from our fellow Academy Schools around Stepney. The pupils gave the governors a guided tour of the building, pointing out interesting features such as our work on Hull City of Culture 2017 projects. The visitors were fascinated with the history of our school but more impressed by the work of pupils and staff. It's a fitting tribute to the vibe around Stepney that we can always show visitors how hard we all work and the wonderful outcomes our pupils produce. One of the visitors, Mr Maxwell, later emailed us to say:
"I would like to express my thanks for your warm hosting of the Chairs' forum. Please pass on our thanks to the pupils for their time to show us around the school. Their enthusiasm, knowledge and politeness are a credit to the school." 

BBC Editor Back in School
Kate Childs from the BBC was back in school working with the ten year 5 and 6 pupils who have been taking part in a filming project with the Look North team. Starting with the Hull City of Culture 2017 firework display on New Year's Day, they have been out and about with their parents and members of the Children's University filming and interviewing the public at different event. Together with Ron from the Children's University, Kate was preparing the pupils for their next big day, by writing the script for the programme. On Friday 24th March, they are going to be in the Look North studios, filming their very own Stepney Look North programme, using footage that their footage that the editors have been putting together.

Foundation Stage Exhibition
Our Nursery and Reception teachers led the way with the first exhibition of 2017. The activities today were all based on an underwater theme: 'Junk modelling', 'Water/ice tray', 'Size order - cut & stick fish', 'fish colouring', 'fish stained glass', 'fishy playdough', 'fish & prawn observational drawing' and 'Under Sea Creatures'. All the parents who joined the session seemed to have a great time helping their children and enjoying the activities. It was a wonderful morning! We have copied in all the comments from our parent questionnaries, replacing pupils' names with XXX or similar.

Thanks from Book Trust

Following our work with Chris Riddell last week, Mr Browning received this message from Emily Drabble of the Book Trust:
"Thank you so much for letting us coming and descend on you. It was an amazing day. We were totally bowled over by your wonderful school, your fabulous, creative, intelligent, polite, sparkling, friendly pupils."
"Chris loved the day so much"
"The pictures Chris drew of the children are just amazing, and they are going to go into a book of poems by Rachel Rooney! Obviously we will send you a copy or two (I know nothing about when this book is coming out but will make sure Chris keeps us all posted). Chris is going to scan the pictures in and send you copies"
"Incredibly excited about the exhibition and by the ceremony, when we'll all meet again!"

BBC Radio Humberside Interviews

James Piekos, a reporter from BBC Radio Humberside popped in before school to interview pupils in our breakfast club about our Stepney Station Statue project. Sarah, Megan, Narelle and Rejoice from year 6 were keen to share news about the statues and, along with Mr Browning, told the reporter some of the many facts that they had learned during the special HCOC17 statue week.

IMPORTANT—New Security Arrangements & Breakfast Club
We are changing some of our arrangements in school to improve security. We introduced the new electronic door locks a few years ago, and re-located the school office last summer, and these have all improved our school security. Now, we are altering a few other things:

Breakfast Club:
1) Our breakfast club is continuing to run in our school hall but the entrance to this will now be via the main school reception office door, on Stepney Lane. We have installed a new white buzzer, near to this main door which rings through in the school hall;
2)May we remind you that parents need to have signed for their child or come to this club. It is the parent’s responsibility to decide whether they bring their child to the club or whether they let their child come by themselves. Either way, the school does not take responsibility for any child until they have come into school and been signed in by our breakfast club staff;
3) Breakfast Club opens at 8am and the last entry for this will be at 8.30am. Any child turning up after 8.30am will not be allowed access to this club.

Gate Openings:
1) We will not be using the Stepney Lane gate in the morning or at the end of school, unless for special events, such as when we have a school disco. This gate will remain locked at all other times. This will make this side of the school more secure, especially as pupils’ bicycle and scooter racks are near to this entrance;
2) The Beverley Road Gate will be the entrance at the start and end of the day. This will be opened at 8.30am.

Reminder
Collecting Children:
Please will you ensure that your child knows the person that is going to be collecting them each day. If this is a different person than usual, such as a neighbour you’ve asked, please will you phone the school to let us know beforehand.

The National Children's Laureate Visits Stepney

This afternoon, we had a major event at Stepney. Chris Riddell, who is this year's National Children's Laureate and a brilliant illustrator and author of children's books, visited Stepney. He was accompanied by Emily Drabble, who is head of children’s book promotion and prizes for the Book Trust and her colleague Charlotte Copping plus Michelle Alford, head of Hull Libraries.

They were also joined by Dominic Lee, head of illustration of Hull Art College and many of his university students. Together with our year 6 class, all these people went into our hall and spent a superb afternoon drawing and sketching. Chris shared some of the secrets of his artwork plus sketched our pupils and looked at drawings that they had done. Finally, he read extracts from one of his latest books before signing autographs. We have been so privileged to have such an important national figure visit us.

In return, Chris sang the praises of our pupils, commenting on how attentively they listened and concentrated. Our pupils were drawing each other and the art students and the art students drew them as part of their course work. The outcomes of this work will be used for an exhibition on the 7th June, when Hull City Hall hosts the announcement of the next Children's Laureate as part of Hull City of Culture 2017. Our pupils have been invited to attend this event.

Mr Browning Meets Chris Riddell

This evening, Mr Browning met with Chris Riddell, who is the National Children's Laureate. Chris is going be working with our year 6 pupils tomorrow in school. It should be an exciting event!

Statue Designs
With only one or two slight alterations needed from Mr Cameron, we met with Brian Campbell to finalise our Stepney Station Statues designs. Once he has transferred these to his company's design software and ordered the sheets of steel, we will then be ready to have our statues manufactured. We should be able to take some of our pupils to the factory to see parts of the process.

TV Interview
Luke and Dan from the Freeview Channel called Estuary TV, interviewed Mr Browning at Stepney Station this morning. Mr Browning told them all about the work that our pupils have done and the visitors who have come into school to help us with our research. The TV company were really interested in our project. Once they have sent us a link to this interview, we will share it with you. On Friday BBC Radio Humberside are coming to school to interview pupils about the sculptures.

Gate Closure
We are now locking the large Stepney Lane Gate to our back playground for added security reasons. Please will parents bring all pupils in via the gate on Beverley Road.

Bicycle Theft
Today, one of our parent’s bicycle was stolen at home time from the back playground. Such events are extremely rare at our school but we advise everyone to be vigilant and not leave anything unattended.

Successful Planning Decision

This afternoon, Hull City Council Planning Committee met to consider our planning application for the Stepney Station Statues. Mr Browning attended the event, which was held in the Main Council Chamber at the Guild Hall. He had to speak for a few minutes to introduce the project. Mr Cameron has been working through the half term holiday to turn our pupils ideas and concepts into working designs. After studying these, councillors took only a few minutes to come to a unanimous decision in favour of our project. They were impressed that our pupils were turning a run-down and neglected area into one of interest for the public.
After receiving this exciting news, we are now able to progress to the manufacturing stage of the project. We will be taking our designs to W Campbell & Son Ltd.

Isabelle's Grandfather
Isabelle brought in a model of a very special train to show the KS2 assembly this morning. This was the 'Sir Nigel Gresley', a famous steam locomotive that is housed in the National Railway Museum in York. Her grandfather was the driver of it, when it first went to the museum. Isabelle told us how her grandfather used to cook his breakfast on his shovel in the locomotive's firebox.

World Book Day Reminder
To celebrate World Book Day tomorrow, pupils may come in their pyjamas and bring their bedtime reading book. Pupils have asked if they may bring their dressing gowns. Yes, of course. They have also been reminded that it will be sensible to wear other clothing underneath their pyjamas. We don't want anyone getting cold!
