On Tuesday 10th July, the evening performance of their Leavers’ Production, which is ‘Oliver’ will start at 6pm.

Stepney's Got Talents Semi's

We had a great afternoon of talented artists, as this year's Stepney's Got Talent competition reached the semi-final stage. It is certainly going to be difficult to spot a winner. The Final's are next Tuesday afternoon.

Year 5 Ambassadors Experience

Our year 5 class had a brilliant day in Hull City Centre today as part of the Hull Children's University Ambassadors Visit. The pupils learned about famous people, such as Andrew Marvell and Sir Leo Schultz, who have been ambassadors for our city. It was then the turn of the pupils to interview people around the city. The weather was ideal for an excellent day out of the classroom. They visited parts of the city that some of them had not been to before so it was a real day of adventure and discovery. Many thanks to Julie Holmes and Brendon Smurthwaite for such a wonderful HCU experience.

Famous Brit of the Week - Rowan Atkinson

Today, Xia led an assembly on our Famous Brit of the week, who is the famous actor and comedian, Rowan Atkinson. Rowan Sebastian Atkinson, CBE (born 6 January 1955) is an English actor, comedian, and screenwriter best known for his work on the sitcoms Blackadder and Mr. Bean. Atkinson first came to prominence in the BBC's sketch comedy show Not the Nine O'Clock News. His other work includes the 1983 James Bond film Never Say Never Again, playing a bumbling vicar in Four Weddings and a Funeral, voicing the red-billed hornbill Zazu in The Lion King.

Summer Holiday Stage School

We have had an advert from the Hull Music Hub advertising this summer holiday activity, which we think many of our pupils may be interested in taking part in. The contact number is 07977982986. We have been really excited by the musical theatre work taking place in school this year so this is an ideal opportunity for our talented youngsters to try something new.

The Fire Service Visit EYFS

Today, the Fire Service visited our Foundation Stage. Officers came in their fire engine and then popped into lessons. They told our pupils about their job and explained the special clothing that they have to wear. This is always a very popular visit and the children certainly enjoyed seeing the fire tender outside our school. Our profuse thanks go to the officers.

This week's British Values Ethos Theme

The British Values theme for this half term is 'Individual Liberty', which is another of the fundamentals of living in our country and a bedrock of British Society, as well as being one of the principal human rights. This week the focus is a PSHCE one on knowing ways to calm down.

Kid Alert for Year 6

Our Year 6 pupils visited the KCOM stadium today for a Kid Alert afternoon. This annual event has representatives from different emergency and safety services. All very important educational messages for life.

Seaside Special Exhibition

Years 1 & 2 put on a wonderful exhibition this morning on the theme of 'Going to the Seaside'. Starting off with three inspiring musical theatre numbers to the music of 'I do like to be beside the seaside', 'Jaws' and the 'Lion King', they then had ice cream before launching into a craft morning. It was great to see thirty nine of our parents join their children for a fun-packed morning. We owe a big debt of gratitude to Sam, our song and dance lady, who has been putting the children through their paces this term. What a spectacle! Please click here to read the comments our parents made about the event.

Year 5 & The Big Malarkey

Year 5 pupils and staff spent a wonderful day at 'The Big Malarkey today', listening to authors and choosing their favourite book. It was a great chance to work with pupils from other schools and share ideas and workshop sessions.

Edinburgh - Day Two

Following a hearty breakfast, we set off for the short walk to the Castle, which was just over the road from our lodgings. This famous ancient monument provided a whole morning of interest and education for everyone. We split into groups and toured this wonderfully exciting castle, looking at the Scottish Crown Jewels and the many exhibits telling the story of this fortress. We then returned to collect our belongings before returning to the station for our return train home. Throughout the visit, we were accompanied by Natasha, Luke and Mark from Hull Children's University, who were there to ensure everything went like clockwork. It was a truly awe-inspiring adventure. Special mention must g

Famous Brit of the Week - David Beckham

Today, Idris led an assembly on our Famous Brit of the week, who is the famous footballer, David Beckham. He played for Manchester United, Preston North End, Real Madrid, Milan, LA Galaxy, Paris Saint-Germain and the England national team for which he held the appearance record for an outfield player until 2016. He is the first English player to win league titles in four countries: England, Spain, the United States and France. He announced his retirement in May 2013 after a 20-year career, during which he won 19 major trophies. Known for his range of passing, crossing ability and bending free-kicks as a right winger, Beckham made his England debut on 1 September 1996 at the age of 21. He was

Year 6 Visit to Edinburgh

Today, our year 6 pupils have been on the first day of their residential visit to Edinburgh. We are piloting this brand new trip for Hull Children's University and it's certainly been an action-packed day. Arriving at 6.30am at Hull's Paragon Railway Station, we boarded a train to York, before changing to a high-speed link for Scotland's famous capital city. The trains ran on time and we were soon disembarking at Waverley Station. Unlike London, the centre of Edinburgh is relatively small, so it was only a short walk before we arrived at our accommodation - the church hall of St. Columba by the Castle. We deposited our luggage and immediately set off down the Royal Mile to the Dynamic Earth

Wacky Wardrobes for Hull Children's University

It was a good excuse for staff and pupils to dress up in Wacky Costumes today as we raised £138 for Hull Children's University's charity appeal. There were smiles all around from pupils, staff and parents to see a host of weird and wonderful combinations and back to front costumes.

Year 6 Bikeability Ends

This week, our netball court has been a cycle training centre today as 'First-Step Sport' instructors took our year 6 pupils through their 'Bikeability' activities. Our pupils have been practising their skills on the court and then out on the surrounding lanes near to our school. As always, this is a really important course for our year 6 pupils.
