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.

If you would like to visit and tour round the school, please feel free to contact the school office.

Paul Rowe

School Projects and Activities

Class 2 Learning

We have been busy in class 2 trying new activities to help us learn in different ways.  The children have used loop cards, played ‘Who am I?’ and shared knowledge by writing it down on large sheets of paper.  They have enjoyed the different ways to learn.  Here are a few photographs.

NSPPC Assembly

The NSPPC came to Paull to deliver a talk about how children could ring childline should they ever need help or advice, no matter what the worry.  They children learnt about things that they might be worried about and the number to ring.  It was on the same day the children dressed as princes and princesses in aid of Dove House Hospice.

Class 3 Hunter and Hunted Final Pieces!

We have been focusing on a unit called the Hunter and the Hunted over the past few weeks in English. We began by children doing a piece of writing about a shark chasing someone in a canoe. We then looked at some example pieces about similar things e.g. Jaws, read them, picked them apart and analysed the language choices and how it was structured. We focused heavily on the structure of dual narrative (two different POV in one piece of writing) and how this created suspense and built tension. Children then did lots of grammar challenges and activities, developing the different sentence types they could use to:

  1. a) Describe the victim and their surroundings
  2. b) Describe the shark and its movements

The last thing children did is produce a piece together in pairs, before then today doing an independent write. This is their final pieces, which the children are very proud of! They should be really proud as they show just how far their writing has come over this past few weeks and over the past year! They have done a really super job and the language and grammar used in these pieces are brilliant!

Class 1 & 2 go to SeaLife Centre in Scarborough

The children of class 1 & 2 visited the SeaLife centre in Scarborough.  They had a guided tour, a walk round in groups and watched the seals getting fed.  It was nice to see the children asking some interesting and scientific questions about the animals.  The children learnt lots of facts about habitats, predators, prey, animal groups and conservation.  It was a fantastic day thanks to Miss Wall and Mrs Good for organising everything.  Thanks to all the parents and governors who helped make it a safe and well supervised day.  Even the weather was good.

Football Club

Football Club coached by Hull City coaches has been a great success.  It has included Year 1 to Year 6, all playing together.  The children have really enjoyed the experience therefore it is planned again for next summer.

Class 3 take to the water

The first part of canoeing took place with half the class going to Kelsey Lake near Burstwick for a canoeing lesson.  The instructors led by Ian, taught the children  about safety on the water and basic canoeing skills. The children all did a brilliant job at getting stuck in and going straight out on the water in their own canoe.

I was so impressed with their daring and adventurous nature and how quick they all were to learn the different skills. The children learnt: how to paddle forwards; backwards; how to turn; how to stop and how to pick up speed.

The children that attended the first session set a great example for the school, listened carefully and respected the staff to ensure that the stayed safe.

The children thoroughly enjoyed the session and Mr Watson was pleased to receive not only a verbal thank you but even a written one from Lucy, Year 6.  Although he won’t be attending the sessions, Mr Watson said the ‘thank you’ made all the hard work arranging the sessions worthwhile.  Hopefully, this can be arranged again! The second group of Class 3 go on the Thursday 22nd June.

Class 3 Theme Park Project

Now that we are well and truly into the last few weeks of the year, Class 3 are starting to get stuck into some different projects. This week, in Maths, the children, in pairs or independently, create their own theme park!

The had a budget of 50,000 and had to choose how to spend their money, what to spend their money and how to organise themselves and budget and priorities as to not run out of money.

A lot of children learnt some vital skills of how to use money and how to priorities as well as come up with a system to ensure they didn’t run out of money.

I was extremely impressed with how much all the children enjoyed it and how well they did with their spendings. I can’t wait to start some other projects, in maths and other subjects too.

Well done guys 🙂

Class 2 maths

Class 2 did some active learning looking at alternative words for addition.  They made some loop cards followed by solving addition problems with missing digits.  They had to show their solution using dienes blocks and cubes.  The children really enjoyed the activities.

flower experiment

This week year 1 have planned an experiment to investigate the job of a stem in a flower. We decided that a flower being in water was important but wondered how we could see that the water had travelled up the stem? We put different coloured food colouring in the water of different flowers as well as replanting one in soil, leaving one in normal water and giving one nothing at all. We have monitored the flowers and seen so far that one flower has turned blue! Looking forward to seeing if any of the other flowers change colour.

Just to let you know all the children will be taking part in a circus skills class Thursday 25th May. After the class parents are invited in to watch a performance with things they have learnt. The performance will start at 3.00, doors will open at 2.50.

 

 

English in Class 2

Class 2 have been looking at descriptive writing.  Today they thought about what it would be like to be at the seaside on the beach.  The children wrote different sights, sounds, smells and feelings collectively, followed by a descriptive piece about the beach.  The children wrote some super pieces of work.

Science in Class 2

The children were looking at upthrust of water today; the final topic in their forces module. They measured the mass of 6 different objects in the air, and then again in water, to see how upthrust effected the mass. The children worked hard and enjoyed the investigation – a lovely end to the forces module.

Collecting plastic bottles

Mrs T is collecting plastic bottles for an art project so if anyone could bring some in, we would be really appreciative! 🙂

Big thank you!

 

Digging pit

In the outside area we have a lovely new digging pit which class 1 had a fun day testing yesterday! We found worms and woodlice and made mud pies. 

Book Swap/Sale

Come check out the small collection of books we have outside our office! Take a book, for a small 50p donation for our school fund, or bring some of your old ones, have a swap and read something new!
