Perseverance Promotes Success

Welcome to our School

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).

The school also offers extended services such as; extended nursery provision, breakfast and after school club, as well as curriculum enrichment sessions.

I hope that you find the information useful on the website and it gives you a flavour of what life is like at Paull Primary School.

FISH and SENDIASS bulletin - 18 May 2017

fish-sendiass

Edition 18 –  Thursday 18 May 2017

Spotlight on…  Disability Access Fund
Disability Access Fund is for childcare settings to claim additional funding for their 3 and 4-year olds, who claim disability living allowance (DLA) in their own right and are receiving free early education (FEE). Childcare settings will be entitled to receive a one-off payment of £615 per year. The DAF is not based on an hourly rate and is an additional entitlement, which is not transferable between providers, if the child moves during the year. It can only be claimed by one provider if the child attends more than one childcare setting for their FEE and it is the parent’s choice which setting receives the payment. Application forms are available for  childcare settings to access and complete with parents. Settings will send the DAF form and a copy of the DLA letter to FISH for the payment to be processed.  
For more information please contact the FISH team on (01482) 396469 or email fish@eastriding.gov.uk.

Science in Class 2

Today in Science the children carried out an investigation on magnetic forces. Working really well in groups, the children identified different materials which a magnet can attract a paperclip through.

Another busy week in Class 1

This week in Class 1 we have been working very hard to improve our handwriting. We have been enjoying the nicer weather and learning lots outside. The children have been using the shed as McDonalds and taking each others orders, investigating water and keeping an eye on the tadpoles which still haven’s grown any legs! 

Tonight is RACE NIGHT!!

Come along to Paull Primary tonight for a night at the races! Place your bets, have a few drinks and a load of laughs!!

It’s bound to be a great night had by all! 🙂

Football @ SHTC for Class 2

On Wednesday night some children in class 2 took part in a Year 3/4 football tournament at South Holderness. They worked extremely hard as a team and the goalkeepers made some spectacular saves. They finished 7th overall which is an outstanding achievement considering most of the team were in Year 2. Well done!

Summer Term in Class 1

Welcome back to all the children after the Easter Holidays. It’s lovely to see them all back rested and eager to learn. This term our theme is ‘Splash’ and the children in class 1 have decided they would like to start learning around this term with under the sea. This week we have started with the book The Rainbow Fish. The children were very busy in week 1 writing about the story and creating different art work using a variety of methods. This week we worked together in groups to change the story using our own ideas. We worked very well in groups and had very imaginative. We look forward to seeing where this them takes us next!

Science in Class 2

Class 2 have been spending this term looking at forces. Today they spent the lesson investigating friction by testing how many Newtons it takes to move a shoe across a variety of different surfaces. The children started to look at how variables can change results, and were engaged and enjoyed the lesson.

Class 3 Summer Term

It’s been extremely busy in Class 3 since coming back after Easter last week as we are in full swing preparing for the dreaded SATS. Children have been doing very well and have really been dedicated to challenging themselves and working hard in the classroom. I’m excited for them to show off what they have learnt this year and do a brilliant job iin their exams next week, which I know they will!!

This term, once the SATS are over, we will be looking at lots of different stories to get some creative writing pieces before the end of the year. We will have the opportunity to explore a few different things in Topic like the Titanic and some geography about the oceans of the world. We will be doing lots of cool science experiments as well as creating some fantastic art pieces with Mrs T. Hopefully we will have the chance to get out of school and visit nearby places to help us explore the topic ‘SPLASH’ as well as swimming lessons and canoeing at Kelsey.

I may have promised the children a water fight at some point too (which i’m definitely going to regret!)

It’s going to be a great last term, dates for all the plays, assemblies and other events will be sent out shortly and in the mean time if any Year 6 parents want to ask any questions about the SATS next week, Miss Nagy is available for a chat before and after school at any point tomorrow or Friday.

Also on the 16th May Miss Nagy and Mrs T are having a quick drop in session after school for any questions or queries about the residential. All these dates will be going out on the newsletter at the end of the week.

Thanks for a great start Class 3 and i’m looking forward to see the brilliant work you do over the last weeks of this school year 🙂

Orienteering at Burton Constable

Year 4 and 6 took part in the orienteering event at Burton Constable.  There were 3 pairs and a group of three.  The year 6, Indiah, Harvey and Ellie children managed to get round the course, although a SAT Nav might have been useful to them.  The year 5 did well with Shaun and Poppy finishing 5th and Charlie and Ruby 10th.  Max and Samuel did a lot of running but missed a few points.  All the children enjoyed themselves and tried hard.  A big thank you goes to the organisers and parents for transport.  The weather was kind, if not a bit chilly and all the children had big smiles on their faces.

Splash! with Class 2

Welcome back to everyone after the Easter holidays.  We are looking forward to a busy and exciting summer term, ‘Splash!’  We have lots of exciting sporting activities planned such as football, hockey, athletics and circus skills.  Our theme will be a mixture of science, environment and creativity.  The first half of the term we have two University students assisting class 2 Miss Tipler and Mr Pearson.  This will allow us to focus on assessment and the optional SATS for Year 2.  We will try to make the optional SATS part of the daily routine so the children feel relaxed and not worried about them.  These are used to assist the teacher assessment.  With water as the theme we will look at different aspects such as hygiene, healthy eating, exercise, water safety, charities (clean water), pollution and environmental issues.  Hopefully, we have some good weather (less rain) to enjoy a bit more outdoor learning.
