Year 6 Tree Planting 
This afternoon, our year 6 pupils worked with David Longthorn from the Yorkshire Wildlife trust, in planting more trees and wild flowers on the embarkment of Barmiston Drain. We have been helping David do this for numerous years now. As always, it is great to be improving our local environment.

Attendance Figures 
We are aiming to raise the attendance levels from last year. Compared with 2014, we have reduced the number of persistent absentees i.e. those who miss 15% or more of the school year to only 5 pupils. We were disappointed to be hit by a wave of illnesses in the spring term, which brought down our attendance lower than the previous year. Once again, we are making this one of our main priorities. As always, we are grateful for the efforts that parents/carers are making to get their children to school. It gives them continuity in the classroom and really helps their learning.

Christmas Secret Shop

We are doing things a little differently this year. On Wednesday 9th December we will be holding our very popular SECRET SHOP. This is where pupils may bring in some money and buy presents for their relatives. In the morning, Mr Morfitt and staff will be upstairs with years 3, 4, 5 & 6 taking it in turns to visit the shop. In the afternoon, it will be the turn of nursery, reception plus years 1 and 2 then at 3pm, parents will also be invited to buy from the shop, plus there will also be bottle and tombola stores.

Santa & Disco Dates
On Thursday 17th December, we will have our Christmas Disco from the end of school to 4.30pm. We are delighted to announce that Father Christmas will be joining us on this occasion. Instead of using the Pastoral room, along the corridor, we will be using the rooms at the back of the school hall, while the disco is taking place. Hopefully, this will give us much more room and prevent the 'overcrowding' problems we usually have along the narrow link corridor.

Nursery Dinner Money
In order to help us with ordering the correct meals, please will parents of our Nursery Children order their school dinners and pay one week in advance please, a form for them to do this is available in Nursery or at the school office. As the afternoon pupils do not come into school till lunchtime, we have no time to order the meals unless we have details well in advance.

Charity: Mission Christmas 2015

We wish to announce that we have now registered our school for the Viking FM 'Mission Christmas' appeal.

 

After supporting overseas projects for many years with things like 'Love in a Box', we have decided to help with a local cause instead.
Following a phone call to the charity manager, Charlotte Pickering, we received this email from her:
"We are delighted your school are able to support Mission Christmas this year! Your amazing efforts towards this year’s appeal is keeping the Christmas dream alive for thousands of sick and disadvantaged children living right here in East Yorkshire & Northern Lincolnshire."
This year’s Mission Christmas Campaign has now started and will be running through till Friday 18th December. With your support, we aim to make a big contribution to support even more local children at risk of not receiving a gift this Christmas.
Our school pupil council has already met to discuss ideas including having another 'Christmas Jumper' day on Friday 11th December. Pupils are being encouraged to wear a 'Christmas Jumper' at school and pay £1 for this cause.

Also, we are asking for donations of 'new' toys so that these may go to the appeal and brighten up a child's Christmas. These must not be wrapped up, so that the Charity organisers may work out which children they are appropriate for.

We appreciate that parents and pupils at Stepney willingly help us with charity events through out the year, so we will be very grateful for your support, yet again, in this appeal. Please send any 'toys' to school with your children, or pop in at the school office'.

Progress Without Levels

Since the government announced that the 'levelling system' was being abolished and replaced with a system called 'Age Related Expectations', we have been waiting for them to explain how progress will be measured in the official data for schools. When pupils were awarded a level, e.g. a level 2b was the national average for pupils at the end of year 2 and level 4b was the average for the end of year 6, it was possible to count up how many levels pupils had moved from one key stage to another. The following explanation has been produced which explains it. Staff across the country are now processing how this will work. Please click here if you wish to find out more. This will lead you to a link and a short video clip.

Sports Tournament at Pearson
This afternoon, our year 5 class went to Pearson Primary for an afternoon of netball and football. Alongside pupils from Clifton and Pearson Primaries, all the pupils were divided in a number of different teams. There wasn't just one team from each school. These were then involved in a series of matches, with points being accumulated. Our teams played brilliantly. Mr Jones reported that, in practice sessions, while our passing in netball has been excellent, our shooting hasn't. However, today, it all came together with many good goals being scored! One of our teams came second overall so many congratulations to them and to everyone for working so well this afternoon.

Thinking About Paris

This afternoon, we had a special assembly at the end of the day to think about the people of Paris. This was in the light of events which took place last week. Staff decided they wanted to have this as there have been pupils who have become quite anxious following events in France. Mr Browning led the assembly in which he talked about the rich and diverse range of cultures and backgrounds that the pupils of Stepney come from and how we respect and celebrate our many different beliefs. Without going into detail about exactly what happened, we thought about how it is people actions that we need to consider. Some pupils have been coming up to staff during the week saying how they have been worried about this tragedy and their fears that this type of violence is increasing. Staff have been working hard to allay these anxieties through discussions and circle time activities, in which they talked about positive and peaceful ways to deal with other people. Pupils have been reminded to be open and talk about any such worries, whether to Stepney Staff or their parents.

Pearson Park Letter
Last week, our year 5 and 6 classes were asked to give their opinions on Pearson Park, as the City Council are looking to make improvements for the City of Culture 2017 events. Mr Carl Lewis received the questionnaires, that our pupils had completed and sent us the following thank-you letter:

"Dear Mr Browning,
I am writing to pass on my thanks to yourself, the pupils and the staff at Stepney Primary School with regards to the recent Pearson Park Heritage Quiz that you kindly agreed to participate in. The data collected from the quiz has provided the Council with robust evidence of young people’s understanding of the heritage of Pearson Park.
This will play an important part in formulating our strategy for better interpretation and communication of the story behind Hull’s first people’s park which is a crucial element within the Heritage Lottery Fund restoration bid.
The opinions which the pupils also provided in terms of what they like and dislike about the park will also allow us to consider design improvements that best meet the needs of younger users.
We very much appreciate the time taken by the school staff in organising the distribution and collection of the surveys and we are delighted that the pupils were able to assist the Council in its efforts to secure funding to improve Hull as part of City of Culture 2017 and its legacy.
Kind regards,
Carl Lewis
Parks for People Project Officer On behalf of Garry Taylor,
City Manager: Major Projects & Infrastructure"

Stepney Triumph at Three Hoop
Miss Baitson, Mr Dear and the year 4 pupils braved the weather to walk over to Pearson Primary School for an afternoon of Three Hoop matches, with our hosts and Clifton Primary pupils. This is a game which is very similar to netball but, as the title suggests, uses three hoops as the goal. After several rounds of different group matches, Stepney had amassed 18 points and won the event. Well done to everyone who took part.

Children in Need Total
Altogether, we have raised £233.73 from last Friday's Children in Need day. Of course, year 4's involvement in the World Record Lesson will have also raised further money for this excellent cause.

16.11.15
World Record Lesson
Last Friday afternoon, Miss Baitson took her year 4 class to Hull University for a very special event. The following press statement is going out today:
"Pupils from Stepney Primary School took part in a World record attempt last Friday (13th) - all whilst raising money for Children in Need. The event, which took place at Hull University was officially started by Violet Holmes, 5, from Thanet Primary School who was attending as part of a surprise arranged by Hull Children’s University.

The record - officially described as the World's 'Largest Language Lesson’ – was attempted via a live ‘webcast’ lesson led by teachers David Andrews and Chris Williams. Pupils at the school joined over 20,000 children from schools in 14 countries in the lesson, which including a number of problem solving challenges followed by a short test!

The attempt is now subject to review by officials at Guinness World Records to determine its success in meeting their strict criteria. The record attempt was supported by Schools Advisory Service, the country’s leading staff absence insurance provider for schools. The company has pledged to donate £1 to Children in Need for every pupil involved in the attempt. The total amount of money raised currently stands at £20,650 and will be donated even if the attempt is not confirmed as successful.

Chris Williams said “This is a great moment of pride for every school involved – including for staff and pupils at Stepney Primary School. Its not every day that you attempt a World Record and share a lesson with so many pupils from countries across the world. The schools have had to pull out all the stops to try and meet the strict criteria. Everyone involved can also be extremely proud of the fantastic sum already raised for Children in Need.”

Bikes & Footballs Request
We would be grateful for your support at the start of the day on the back playground. We are asking pupils not to ride their bicycles and scooters across the back playground at the start of the day or throw their footballs about as parents and young children are having to dodge these obstacles! The last thing we want to have happen is for anyone to be injured by a bike or a ball. Please will you remind your child/ren to take extra care in this regard.

Foundation Stage Exhibition
We were delighted to welcome parents and relatives of our nursery and reception pupils to our first exhibition of this academic year. We had a great turnout with parents joining their children in a variety of activities. Everyone enjoyed the art activities, decorating biscuits and drawing henna patterns on their hands.

Today, our year 6 parents came to see Mrs Brocklebank and Mrs Wilde. Many thanks for all those who have attended throughout this week.

Holidays & Fines!
We have to remind everyone about the fines procedures for absences from school. If a pupil is taken out of  school during term time for a holiday, it is the school policy not to authorise this. If a parent/carer decides to do this, s/he or they are likely to incur fines, issued from the Local Authority. For 10 or more sessions (a session is defined as being either a morning or an afternoon), the fine is worked out as £60 per pupil and £60 per parent/carer of that pupil. For example: if there are two pupils and two parents then this would be £60 x 2 pupils + £60 x 2 parents = £60 x 4 = £240.
It is imperative that pupils do not miss time for holidays during the term time to ensure they continue to make progress.

Governor Information Online!
All schools have a statutory obligation to print details of their school governors. If you would like to see these, then please go to the following page on our website, either by using the link below or going onto the parents tab, followed by the governors tab.

Environmental Debating
Mrs Rodgers took Adam, Jacob, Josh, Julia, Klaudia and Seraphimna to the Guildhall in Hull for a full day's 'Primary Environmental Conference'. It is an event that we attend each year but Mrs Rodgers thought that this years had the best debate that she had ever seen. All the pupils there from many schools took part in a mature and intelligent discussion on environmental issues under the title of 'Action Speaks Louder'. Our year 6 representatives were a true credit to Stepney. They continued with the brilliant debating skills that they had shown in the Houses of Parliament during their recent visit to London. Well Done!

On Friday 13th November, it is Children in Need day. This year, our theme is on SuperHeroes. For £1, pupils may come as a superhero, to raise money for this excellent cause.

If pupils don't have a superhero costume, they may come in non-school uniform for £1. Classes will be making and decorating their superhero masks. We will also be selling buns, so pupils need to bring extra money for this. It promises to be a fun day.

Welcome Back

May we welcome you back from the autumn half term holiday. We hope everyone has had a enjoyable and relaxing break.

Poppies For Sale
Today, our year 6 pupils have started to bring around poppies for sale. In addition, we have a selection of other Remembrance Day items, which are available at the school office, ranging from 50p to £1.

Parents' Consultations
Today, letters have been sent out for the autumn parents' consultation evenings. Once again, we have decided to stagger the consultations over the week to make it easier for parents who have more than one child in school and to give parents more chance to have their preferred time slot. We hope this will make this much better.
