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.

Dance Club

Our dance club this term has been run by Amelia from HKR.  The children have really enjoyed the sessions and hopefully that can perform something for the school.  Thank you Amelia.

Hull KR Rugby Coaching

Ben from HKR has been in to coach the children rugby skills.  The children have learnt how to hold and pass the ball correctly while playing lots of different games.  It is the second year in a row that HKR have been to Paull to deliver the rugby programme which has been very successful.  Thanks to the community team at HKR.

Red Nose Day

This year for Red Nose Day we are dressing up in anything red! As we are not wearing our regular uniform we also ask for a small donation of £1 to raise as much money for Red Nose Day as possible.

On Friday, we will be having a big assembly at 2:30 (everyone welcome) to sing some songs, tell some jokes, pull some funny faces and for the children to see and explain just what a worthwhile cause it is and why we celebrate Red Nose Day.

If children want to enter a joke into the competition, so they can read it out in the assembly on Friday and maybe win a prize then they need to go and see Miss Nagy with a small donation of 20p to enter their joke. We will also be having a raffle and bake sale after the assembly to raise more money! Any donations to the raffle and bake sale are very welcome! Please bring as much in as you want 🙂

Thanks and see you Friday in your best red clothes!

Class 2 Science Investigations

Class 2 have been carrying investigations into materials.  This week the children completed an investigation into the elasticity of materials.  They carried out a fair tests using a variety of materials and recorded their findings.

HKR Physical Literacy in Class 1

HKR have been coming into school to deliver physical literacy sessions with class one.  The children worked in small teams rotating clockwise to recreate different balances.  Communication, listening and co-operation was a key part of the children’s learning for these physical activities.  They also they played hot potato, a game they really enjoyed.  A big thank you goes to Amelia the HKR coach who will be back in the summer term to do some dance with Class 1.

Year 5/6 Dodgeball Competition

On Wednesday night, 8 children from Class 3 took part in a dodgeball competition at Thorgumbald Primary school along with Hedon Primary and Preston. Although Preston won the competition, the team worked extremely well together and won numerous games! The behaviour of the children was brilliant and they showed great sportsmanship and represented the school very well. I was proud to accompany them and it really was a shame we couldn’t take the title.

Hull Pirates

Hull Pirates have a few fixtures left and tickets are available at £10 for an adult and child at our administration office.  They are giving the school free hockey sessions for any tickets we sell.  Why not support a local team.

Parent letter to School

Hull Pirates Visit Paull

The Hull Pirates Ice Hockey coaches visited Paull to deliver a hockey session with Class 2.  It was excellently coached and the children really enjoyed the session, learning some new skills.  Hull pirates are giving us these sessions for free.  They have given use tickets for the next home game on the 19th March against Sheffield.  These tickets are available to parents, carers, friends of the school and staff for £10 (admits 1 adult and 1 child) from the school Admin office.  Those children and parents that attended the last game said it was a great experience.

Model dinosaurs by Class 2

Over the last few weeks the children have created dinosaurs out of newspaper. The children dip mod roc in warm water and then smooth it on to the newspaper. They have to do this several times to make sure all the paper is covered and the model is rigid. Once dry and all the newspaper is covered, the children paint their models. It is great to do and the end products are super (bit messy at times!)

  

Class 3 Measuring Angles

For a few weeks now children have been dying to properly learn how to use a protractor as the times we have used them before it just hasn’t stuck for some, so today we got rid of books and decided to measure angles using some tape and the tables. The children got really stuck in and enjoyed writing on the tables and using protractors to find all the measurements of the angles.

By the end of the lesson all the children said they felt more confident at using a protractor now, great job Class 3!

The course aims to hep parents:

Goole
Meet Fred from Hijinx and Blind Summit Theatre at the Junction (Goole) – Meet Fred. He is just a regular guy who wants to get on in life. He wants a good job and to settle down with a nice girl. The only problem is that Fred is a two-foot tall cloth puppet and day to day life is tough when you rely on three other guys being with you at all times. Out for a quiet walk, on a date, in the bathroom, life is never simple for the puppets among us.

Blind Summit are one of the UK’s leading contemporary puppetry innovators. Their shows The Table and Citizen Puppet have enjoyed huge success in recent years, both at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and on extensive national and international tours. Hijinx are one of the UK’s leading inclusive theatre companies. Expect something edgy, surprising, sometimes uncomfortable, sometimes hilarious, sometimes beautiful, but always with a cast that includes artists with learning disability. The cast of Meet Fred includes two actors with Aspergers and one with Downs’s syndrome, working as equals alongside four actors without learning disabilities.  The show contains strong language and is recommended for ages 14+. Although not suitable for children, the show may be of interest to parents, carers and older people with autism and we would really appreciate it if you could share the flyer with your networks and colleagues.
Date: Friday 17 March 2017
