A warm welcome to Paull Primary School. Our school is in the small village of Paull in the East Riding of Yorkshire. We have 69 children in the whole school. The youngest child is three and the eldest is eleven. There are three classes. The school offers a flexible nursery provision all of the week for children from the age of three.

In our last Ofsted inspection November 2013, the school was judged as Good with Outstanding behaviour – pupils behave exceptionally well in this school and pupils of all ages work and play extremely well together. The report mentioned a comment made by the children – Paull Primary School is like one big cosy family.

The school offers a rich and varied curriculum enhanced further by many visiting speakers and school trips to places and events which support the different areas of learning. Many of these events are paid for in part or full by Friends of Paull School (FOPS).

Class 3 Spring Term

We’re well into the Spring term now and it has been super hectic in Class 3!! After a relaxing Christmas holidays we have hit the ground running doing lots of different lessons and activities. Our topic this term is ‘Digging up the Past’ which allows us to dive into some really fun topics.

This half term we are also lucky to have Mr Webster with us who is taking some of the lessons whilst Miss Nagy has chance to take smaller groups out of the classroom in preparation for the upcoming SATS.

This term Class 3 will be focusing on measure, percentages, ratio and proportion and algebra in maths whilst in English we will be looking into ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ and then doing some non fiction work as well as continuously looking at grammar and spelling.

In Topic, we have started by researching and learning about Dinosaurs and then we will be looking at the Tudors in more detail after the February half term. In Science, Class 3 have started looking at forces, how they have been discovered and tested and doing some experiments of their own.

In R.E we are looking at freedom and justice and how this has been portrayed over the years through important events and through inspirational people.

Finally, we still have Miss Shing, Mr Dunham and Mr Wilcock in, doing French, P.E. and music!

All this whilst lots of preparation as SATS are quickly approaching!! Homework this term will be given out on a Friday and will be expected to be handed in by Wednesday and spelling tests will happen every Friday night so keep practicing at home and keep reading at home too 🙂 boosters are also continuing again too.

Thanks for all your continued support and if you ever need or want to pop in and chat with Miss Nagy, feel free or messages on Class Dojo are always welcome.

Thanks!

Dodgeball Competition 2017

Our dodgeball team excelled again this year, narrowly missing out on the finals.  They came join second with Skirlaugh Primary with equal points in pool B.  Paull won the first two matches and lost the last two, which were closely fought.  The competition was well organised and refereed by the sixth form.  It was nice to see the sixth form students being fair and encouraging to the primary pupils, a credit to SHTC.  Our pupils were very well behaved, played the matches with a good sporting attitude and the whole atmosphere was positive.  Thanks to those parents who helped with transport.

Free Early Education – for childcare settings and childminders
To visit the ‘Information for existing childminders and childcare settings ‘ page of the FISH website, please click here.

The Free Early Education funding calendar for the academic year 2015-2016 is now available on the ‘Working with children -information for existing childminders and childcare settings‘ page on the FISH website

You should all have received the Special Edition Mailout last week to outline what you need to complete for your estimates, headcount and Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP). You will also need to complete the Early Years Census for 2017 – a separate mailout will be sent this week with guidance on how to complete this.

1. Estimates – all Free Early Education providers must estimate the number of hours they predict they will use for Summer Term 2017 to Spring Term 2018 to enable payments to be made at the beginning of each term. The estimate spreadsheet is available on the ‘Working with children-Information for childminders and childcare settings‘ page on the FISH website. All completed estimates must be returned via email to schools.finance@eastriding.gov.uk by Friday 3 February 2017

2. Headcount – The eHub will open at 2.00 pm on Wednesday 18 January and will close at 4.00 pm on Friday 27 January 2017. Please include all children who are eligible for 2 year funding and 3/4 year funding who are registered at your setting on the week of headcount. The eHub will not reopen this term so please ensure you enter all headcount information accurately within these dates or you will not be paid.

3. Early Years Pupil Premium – This is for eligible 3/4 year olds only. Details collated on your parental agreement forms should be entered into the eHub for any new children . For adopted and Looked After Children, please contact FISH on (01482) 396469 with child’s name, address, date of birth of and parents name

4. Early Years Census 2017 – The Early Years Census is a collation of data of individual child level information in relation to those children aged 2,3 and 4 who are taking up a funded place. The Early Years Census became mandatory in 2008 for all Local Authorities to collect this information  and submit it to the Department for Education in order to enable a more accurate distribution of funding and proper accountability for the expenditure in this area.

The Early Years Census must only include Private, Voluntary and Independent (PVI) providers. Any PVI provider within the Local Authority who does not have any funded children at the time of the census must not be included. All Census information must be returned by Friday 27 January 2017

A separate email will be sent to all Free Early Education providers this week with information about completion of the Early Years Census for 2017.

Please refer to the Special Edition Mailout for step by step guidance on how to complete the above and do not hesitate to contact the FISH team with any queries on (01482) 396469

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
To visit the local offer website please click here.

1. ATTENTION ALL MANAGERS AND SENCO’s – East Riding Local Offer Early Years Provider Template

The local offer sets out in one place information about provision the local authority expects to be available across education, health and social care for local children with SEND. Local authorities must publish a local offer and must keep it under review and there is a duty for early education providers to cooperate with the local authority in the development and review of its Local Offer.  

A template is now available for all early years settings (including childminders) to complete so that information about the support you can offer to children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) can be made available to parents and other professionals. This will provide parents with information about the support they can expect if their child attends your setting.

There will be a focus on completing the Local Offer Template at the forthcoming Safeguarding and Inclusion Cluster meetings, where you will have the opportunity to share your ideas on how to present your Local Offer information.

The agenda for this term’s safeguarding and inclusion cluster meeting will include the following:

·        Early Years provider Local Offer to Parents

·        Inclusion updates

·        Signs of Safety

·        Update on the 30 hrs entitlement

·        General updates

Please could you bring a copy of your SEN policy to the cluster meetings to refer to in a discussion activity.

If you have not already done so you are also advised to download and print the very useful resource detailed below, and bring along to the cluster meeting.

SEN and Disability in the Early Years Toolkit
This tool kit contains everything Early Years settings need to know about their responsibilities in supporting children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

This can be accessed from the link below.

http://www.councilfordisabledchildren.org.uk/media/966790/early-years-toolkit-merged.pdf

If you make a request using the old format you will be asked to resubmit the information using the new form which may result in a delay in the baby/child being discussed by the Early Years Support team.

Digging Up The Past – Class 2

Happy New Year from Class 2.  Our theme for this term is ’Digging up the Past’.  We have already started to learn about dinosaurs and will be studying ‘The Vikings’ in a few weeks.  The literacy focus will be more on non-fictional text, looking at how it is organised and the different features.  To develop the children’s mathematical skills, the morning maths lessons have been split between Mr Rowe and Mr Watson to allow more focused differentiation.  In science we will be investigating ‘Rocks and Soils’ and materials.  We have Mr Dunham from Sportsability doing some ball and target skills, and in the second half of the spring term Hull KR coaches will be coaching touch rugby.  The children have been given reading cards in place of their reading journals which they will receive reward points for completing.  Homework will be given out at the end of each week and collect every Wednesday, so spellings and minute maths can be tested.  It promises to be a busy term leading up to the final assessments in summer.

Following on from last years highly successful conference focussing on adults “Leading the Way” this year we plan to have a greater focus on the fact that children learn by leading their own play and that, in planning and guiding children’s activities, practitioners need to reflect on the different ways children learn.
This focus is intrinsically linked with the Local Authority drive to redress the imbalance of progress and attainment of disadvantaged children compared to their more advantaged peers.

The Free Early Education funding calendar for the academic year 2015-2016 is now available on the ‘Working with children -information for existing childminders and childcare settings‘ page on the FISH website1. 30 hours Extended Entitlement – Market Research Grant to Schools and Settings
As part of our work as an Early Innovator for the Extended Entitlement, we are able to support schools and settings in their market research activities with parents by contributing £150 to the costs of purchase of on-line survey tools, such as Survey Monkey and SmartSurvey amongst others. Many of these tools are free to use for a limited number of questions and respondents, but market research for the new 30 hours offer is likely to involve more extensive questionnaires.  

Any school or setting wishing to purchase an on-line survey tool, and use it to conduct 30 hours market research, should contact FISH for an application form. These should be returned by Friday 24 February with proof of purchase, to ensure payment by the end of the financial year. Please note that the costs of these tools is usually more than £150, so schools and settings will therefore need to make a small contribution using some of their own funds.

To further support schools and settings in their market research activities, we have produced a survey template of key questions to ask parents about the 30 hour offer, which will be sent out to all those who attended the recent CBIS 30 hrs Workshops and will be available on the FISH website in the new 30 hours Extended Entitlement section early in the new year.

Schools
1. Merry Christmas to all Schools this will be your last FISH Mailout for this year. Tuesday 10 January will be the first FISH Mailout of 2017 to all schools and childcare providers.

2. Early Years Conference 2017 – You should all have received the Special Edition Mailout yesterday with details of the Early Years Conference. Please see below:

Following on from last years highly successful conference focussing on adults “Leading the Way” this year we plan to have a greater focus on the fact that children learn by leading their own play and that, in planning and guiding children’s activities, practitioners need to reflect on the different ways children learn.
This focus is intrinsically linked with the Local Authority drive to redress the imbalance of progress and attainment of disadvantaged children compared to their more advantaged peers.
