International Pupil Council
Year 6 pupils Ellis and Stelina, accompanied by Mr Browning, travelled to Longhill Primary School today to take part in the latest IPC meeting. Since it was started in 2010 by Mr Browning in Hull and Mr Mason in Freetown, Sierra Leone, this group has gone from strength to strength. This week, the pupils were discussing an exhibition that they hope to put on in 2017, linking events in Hull City of Culture 2017 and in Freetown.

Phonics Lecturers!
Once again, Miss Atkinson and Miss Baitson took on a different role this week. Instead of teaching primary school children, they taught primary school student teachers instead. For many years, we have had the these trainees from the University of Hull coming into school to learn all about how phonics is taught in school. When we had our big year 6 classroom, before it was turned into our new kitchen, Miss Aktinson would teach the students in this room. This year, due to the reduced classroom space that we have, our two literacy co’ordinators went to the university. They led different sessions, working with the university students. As always, it was a successful day.

Viking FM Christmas Appeal
We wish to announce that we have once again 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  decided last year to help with a local cause instead. This year’s Mission Christmas Campaign will be running through till Tuesday 20th 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. Last year, they helped 18,080 pupils through this scheme. 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'.

Spotty Day for Children in Need Total
Last week, we raised £263.80 for Children in Need with our spotty clothes, face paints and bus sales. Well done, everyone!

Spotty Day for Children in Need
Today, it has been Children in Need Day and the theme was ‘Spotty’! We asked for staff and pupils to come wearing anything spotty, and we were not disappointed. In our morning assembly a group of year 6 girls and a group of year 5 girls led the assembly with two amazing powerpoint and drama presentations.There was a wide assortment of spotty clothes and spotty hair! What a great turn-out! All the money we have raised from this is on its way to the Children in Need campaign. In our Friday afternoon assembly, ten lucky raffle ticket winners were presented with Pudsey Bear pencil case sets.

Hull City of Culture 2017 Volunteer
Each school has been allocated two HCOC17 volunteers. We were delighted to welcome Don Knibb and Sue Rose, who came and  introduced themselves to the pupils in this morning’s assembly.

Attendance Figures
Last year, we were not able to get out attendance over 95%. We started the term with less than 95% so we need to keep working hard to improve this. Unfortunately, during this week, many of our youngest pupils have been off with coughs and cold and, despite the best efforts of our attendance team and our school nurse, we haven't been able to combat this wave of sickness.

Parent Governors Needed
With the conversion of our school to an academy in the Yorkshire and Humber Cooperative Learning Trust (YHCLT), we have just reformed our Governing Body. We have two places for parents to join us. There are three criteria for being a parent governor: 1) if you are a parent of a child who is at our school; 2) if you are a parent of a child who has left our school but still in secondary education or 3) a parent of a child of school age, even if the child hasn’t been to our school.

If you are interested or know anyone who is interested, then please ask to see Mr Browning or Mr Morfitt. Our governing body has a great mix of people. While they discuss important issues to do with the running of the school, the governors are also a friendly and happy bunch. They often welcome new members with open arms. There is one governing body meeting every half term. These meetings are usually on a Wednesday night, starting at 4.30pm and they usually last a couple of hours maximum.

So… please come and join us. You can make a difference to our school!

16.11.16
Anti-Bullying Week
We have all been thinking about how to be a good friend to each other and to stamp out bullying. Yesterday and today, some of our year 6 pupils led assemblies with power points and little plays about bullies and how to stop them! We have a really good vibe around the school this year and we’re delighted how our pupils get on with each other. There is no room for complacency though so we ensure we work with any child who may have an issue. We always tell pupils to let us know straight away if they feel they are being picked on or bullied.

15.11.16
Tree Planting
This afternoon, Mrs Bayley and some of our year 6 pupils planted our new trees in the outdoor classroom raised beds. We have a mixture of different shrubs, which should form a good screen in years to come.

14.11.16
Year 3 Parents' Consultation
Mr Ingram started the week for us with his class's consultation afternoon. We have been delighted by all those who have been in to see our teachers. The next sessions will be on Wednesday and Thursday.

Remembrance Day
We have been selling poppies and poppy-related gifts for the last couple of weeks. As usual, this is very popular with the children and the wrist bands have been selling particularly well. It is for a very worthwhile cause and gives us a chance to remember all those who have given their lives in wars. At 11am, we had a minutes silence in all our classes.

Spotty Day for Children in Need - Friday 18th November
Next Friday is Children in Need Day and the theme is ‘Spotty’! We are asking for pupils to come wearing anything spotty. This could be spotty clothes, spotty face paint etc. We are asking for £1 to be spotty, plus Buns will be on sale on the Friday for 20p each.

New Maths Website
We have changed the main maths website that we use. For many years our pupils have been logging onto the 'My Maths' site. Due to popular demand from the pupils themselves and after considering different options, we have signed up for the 'SumDog' site. We realise some parents have already logged on to this but we now have a school licence. Please click here or on the link image on the homepage of our website.

Woodland Trust Trees
A few weeks ago, we applied for some free trees and bushes from the Woodland Trust. We are delighted to report that, not only was our application accepted, but the plants have been delivered today. In preparation for this, Mrs Bayley, our green-fingered teaching assistant, has been clearing the old plants from the raised beds in our outdoor classroom.

Spotty Day for Children in Need - Friday 18th November

KCOM SIMNET
On Wednesday, a team from KCOM returned to lead workshops with our year 5 and 6 classes. They had already visited us a few weeks ago to talk about the fibreoptic network which is used in Hull. This follow-up event featured Brendon, Janet, Kerry and James, who brought resources to demonstrate how emailing systems work. There wasn't a computer,  or any other electronic device in sight. Instead pupils passed
written messages in canisters along piece of string to replicate how emails flow through cabling systems. It proved to be a fun yet informative learning experience with all pupils being totally absorbed in the activities.

EYFS Parents' Consultation
Today marked the first of our parent consultation sessions. Mrs Smart conducted meetings with the nursery pupil parents in the morning and the Reception teachers met with their pupils' sets of parents in the afternoon. 

8.11.16
Famous Hull People
You may see that some of our display boards are presently showing work on various historical figures who are linked with Hull. Some of these have been born in the city while others have been remembered for their work within Hull. So far, we have looked at Amy Johnson - the aviator, Clive Sullivan - the Rugby League player; Dr Mary Murdoch - the first woman GP in the city and Philip Larkin, who was the Hull University Librarian and famous poet. This week, our attention has focused on John Venn, who is famous for producing the 'Venn Diagram', which is a pictorial way of representing and sorting data in mathematics. In the assemblies this week, Mr Browning has been getting the pupils to act out sorting themselves in a large Venn Diagram in the school hall. Venn Diagrams are not new to the pupils. They learn how to interpret them and to construct them in their lessons, but it was a useful way to remind them and to make that important link with Hull City of Culture 2017.

7.11.16
Parent's Consultation Reminder
May we remind you that these sessions are taking place next week, Your child should have already brought home a letter regarding parents' consultation and, hopefully, returned a reply slip to school.

Many of us are parents ourselves and, like you, want the very best for our children. We really value the discussions we have with you.

Defibrillator Training
At the end of last term, we acquired a new Defibrillator. This is located near to the new SEN room by the door leading out onto the front playground. Today, a number of our staff had a full day's training so that they are fully conversant with using this life-saving machine. We hope no one will need this but, if they do, we have well-trained staff who know how to use it.

Flags Are Flying High Again
In 2008, we had a 'European'-themed day, and bought in flags to adorn our hall. These have become part of the school over the last few years but the building work during the summer had left them looking very grubby. Mr Browning has ensured they have had a good clean, although the sight of 26 flags hanging on his washing line to dry did cause some comments from neighbours about it looking more like the United Nations! Mr Coles has put these back up and the school hall now looks resplendent again!

A NEW ERA - STEPNEY CONVERTS TO AN ACADEMY TODAY
From this morning, we have become an academy as part of the Yorkshire & Humber Cooperative Learning Trust. This is a Multi-Academy Trust, which will comprise the following schools, when all the legal details have gone through for these:
Chiltern Primary School
Ings Primary School
Kelvin Hall Secondary School
Priory Primary School
St. George's Primary School
Stepney Primary School

We had stated in the summer that Stepney Primary School would be converting to an academy on 1st September 2016. Owing to delays in the legal process, this was put back. It seems to be that the majority of schools who convert to academies have delays with the land transfer documents and we were no exception to this. Fortunately, the various local authority departments/solicitors etc have sorted the legal processes.
While we have been waiting for this to go through, we have been working with our YHCTL partners since before the summer and are already putting many new practices into place. It is certainly an exciting time for us all.

Halloween Disco This Thursday
The Halloween disco is on Thursday this week from 3.15pm till 4.15pm.
It is £1 TO GET IN, and for this, pupils will also get a glow stick.
Each child may ALSO bring a maximum of £1 spending money for Hot dogs, drinks and sweets.
If you child wants to go to the disco in fancy dress, then please send this in a bag so they may change into their costume at the end of the school day.
