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).

Hull KR Dance Opportunity

After half term, Hull KR have kindly invited us to participate in an event which will allow children to dance at one of Hull KRs upcoming matches. On the 1st of March Hull KR will be coming into school to teach the entire school (3+) a simple dance routine. Children then have the opportunity to perform at KCOM Craven Park, at half time, of the Hull KR v.s. Sheffield game on the 5th March.

Hull KR are also offering us discounted tickets for this game, tickets are priced at £16 for adults and £3 for children. If you are interested in buying some tickets they can be purchased from the office up until the 2nd of March. Tickets will also be available on the day for those that want to come, however, they will not be given a discount.

School will not be transporting the children to the game, parents/carers are responsible for taking their own children and then Miss Nagy and other teachers will be there to meet the children to take them onto the pitch to dance at half time. More information about what is happening on the day will be given out after half term.

It’s really a great opportunity for the children to be part of something very exciting and we really encourage you to buy some tickets and watch the children have a great time.

Thanks!

 

Class 2 Science Magnets

Class 2 did an investigation into magnetic materials.  They first learnt about the magnetic attraction and repulsion of magnets. Then tested different materials to see which ones were magnetic.  There investigations found that mainly metals were magnetic and not all metals.  The children recorded their results and wrote conclusion about their investigations.

Class 2 Measuring Mass

Class 2 were measuring mass using the balances and weights.  The children were measuring two items and calculating the difference (subtraction) between them.  A few children managed to successfully convert grams into kilograms developing their skills further.

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

1. Estimates – we are still outstanding  over 100 of our setting’s information regarding their estimates for Summer 2017, Autumn 2017 and Spring 2018. This information must be returned by 17 February 2017 at the latest by email to schools.finance@eastriding.gov.uk.

The estimate spreadsheet to complete can be found on the ‘Working with children-Information for childminders and childcare settings‘ page on the FISH website.

NB. If you are not completing estimates as you have no funded children then please confirm this by email to schools.finance@eastriding.gov.uk

Failure to meet the above deadline will result in late payments.

Please contact Hayley Featherstone on (01482) 394219 if you have any queries.

Safeguarding and child protection
If you have any concerns about a child, please contact the Early Help and Safeguarding Hub on (01482) 395500.

Recently we have had a number of occasions where providers have delayed reporting safeguarding issues to the Early Help and Safeguarding Hub (EHaSH), the Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO) and Ofsted.  This has resulted in children being put at risk.  It has also meant that the Local Authority has had to report them to Ofsted.  

Some of these issues seem to have been down to a confusion where the providers were aware of the involvement of other services and believed that as the lead agency that this service would report the concern.
 
As a provider you need to be clear that if you become aware of a safeguarding issue where a child is or could be at risk then it is your duty to report this immediately.

For more information about how to report a safeguarding concern please visit the ‘Support and protection for children and young people  (0-19 years)‘ page on the East Riding website.

A big Thank you to all those who distributed and/or took part in the parenting consultation using the new Sensemaker software that you used by following a link or downloading an app.  We received over 350 responses which is a very healthy representation of what parents’ experiences really are and what’s important.
The prizes of an ipad and Love to Shop vouchers have been distributed to those selected from these 350 people, through a prize draw.

The experiences and responses shared by parents are being analysed and a report and headlines from this work will be distributed when the analysis is complete.  We look forward to sharing our findings and also how it has affected the Parenting Strategy (currently in development).

Going way beyond an Education, Health and Care Plan:
‘The words Person Centred are at the heart of Education, Health and Care plans.’  
This workshop will inform you of what those words actually mean in practice to you and your child.  By being really person centred we can enrich our children’s lives to make sure that their thoughts and voices are central to home, community and in school.   It can also make a difference to our own values and how we interact with professionals and services.  This workshop will give you some tools to use in your everyday life whether you have an EHC plan or not.  We will look at the history of person centred approaches and some simple tools to use.  We will look at 1 page profiles and discuss ways in which they can be used.  We will share ideas and resources of how working in a person centred way really does make a difference.
This will be a popular workshop – Early booking is advised to avoid disappointment. Contact Karen email: allyervip@hotmail.com to book your place.

Class 3 Cooking Pasta Puttanesca – click to see videos

In Class 3 we have been focusing heavily on Lemony Snicket’s ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ and the children this week did some research on how to recreate the pasta dish cooked in the book. Yesterday, the children found the recipe and recorded the instructions, then later on they used different supermarket websites to price up the ingredients and recorded their results using Microsoft Excel and today, as a class, they created the dish, The children really got stuck in and it actually tasted really good, some of the children loved trying new things such as capers, anchovies and olives, however, they weren’t all the biggest fans.

Here are some pictures and videos of their cooking class, hopefully tomorrow they can now move on to critiquing their dish. Their is also numerous videos that have been posted on to Seesaw, parents need to scan the QR code I sent home the other day using the seesaw app to see these.

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).

Class 2 e-safety

In Class 2 today, Miss Nagy looked at the power of images on the internet and how to be safe and appropriate when using the internet and posting pictures.

The children looked at what not to share on the internet and how first impressions when looking at pictures and images can be very powerful. The children then did some drama and reenacted what they would do in certain situations such as someone posted something mean about one of their photos and shared with the class how they would react and what is the smartest and safest thing to do in that situation.

Here are some of the class sharing how to be safe on the internet at home and in school.

Well done Class 2 🙂

Story writing in Class 2

Class 2 listened to a story written by Paul Jennings about a remote control that can actual control people. They wrote their own stories and then shared them with each other. The children said about what they liked about each other’s stories and what could be done to improve them. They voted for the story which they enjoyed listening to the most. Well done to all the children for taking part and giving great feedback about each others work. Congratulations to the four finalists; Ruby Y4, Shaun Y4, Poppy Y4 and Jasmine Y2.

Year 3 and 4 Measures in Maths

Year 3 and 4 have been doing Measures in Maths. They constructed a vehicle out of K-Nex to travel as close as possible to a target. The class then measured how far the vehicle was from the target and recorded the distances down in centimetres and metres. Some vehicles were very close to the target and others not so close. The furthest measurements away was 8.21m and the closest was 0.53m.

Measuring Temperature Class 2

In science class 2 have been learning about different materials and this week they learnt how to measure temperature using the dataloggers.  They measured room, body, outside and ice temperatures.  The children could recognise common temperatures and make estimates from this information.

Measuring in Maths – Class 2

Class 2 have been measuring length using small rulers, 1 metre rulers and the trundle wheels.   The children measured different items in the class and recorded their results in different units of measurement.

Class 3 Dinosaurs!

In Topic we have been concentrating heavily on The Dinosaurs and have done different things such as research, art and created our own dino reports. This week, however, we looked at the Cretaceous period and the final moments of the dinosaurs before their extinction occurred 65 million years ago. We looked at the different species of animals, plans and the climate of the earth in that period and then using facts and research we created a group freeze frame mural of the Cretaceous period. We still have some things to finish but here are the children hard at work, they worked really well as a team 🙂 well done guys!

I’ve also posted some of their comments on Seesaw, if any parents haven’t connected yet, I sent a letter home with the kids today so check them out too!

The Piano – writing and performances for Class 3

Today in English, we looked at a short film called ‘The Piano’ and the children wrote some fantastic pieces of work. Some of them got the chance to read their work and record themselves doing so.

Here are the QR codes for Indiah, Keira, Kurt, Jacob, Riley and Zuzanna’s pieces.

To watch – download a qr reader on your phone and device and use that to open the videos.
