Welcome to the Blog Page
Class 3 are really enjoying their dance lessons, thanks Miss Newby. We are really starting to get the hang of things. Hope you enjoy the video!
This week Class 1 have worked hard to change the What Ever Next story. They have used their own ideas to send Baby Bear on a different adventure. The children created some lovely detailed story maps and used their ideas to write their story. We’re very impressed with how hard they have worked this week, well done, keep it!
We have given out 2 star awards in class 1 this week. The first went to Sidney for working really hard when writing the What Ever Next story and the progress he is making in writing. The second went to Reuben for a beautifully detailed story map of our changed What Ever Next story. Well done boys keep up the hard work!
Class 2 have been learning about the solar system and how we see with light from the sun. They have learnt light travels in straight lines, about different light sources and different types of reflectors. We demonstrated how we day and night happen and why we can see the moon sometimes. Next week we will be investigating why shadows change size throughout the day.
This week the children have been labelling diagrams in preparation for the Big Write. On Friday we labelled ‘Mr Shaw’. Hands – to support the children in their work. Ears – to listen to the children. Mouth – to explain how to do work. The children created their own labels and Mr Shaw was a really good sport for being ‘labelled’.
Just a quick hello from me, Mrs Rodgers. This has been my first week at Paull Primary and I have loved every moment! I look forward to continuing to teach class 3.
Our theme for this term is ‘Tomorrow’s World’. We have already started to learn about space facts in our topic as well as having a mixed age art afternoon on Thursday. We are looking at science fiction stories and preparing and improving our descriptive phrasing ready for our first Big Write. We are continuing with daily reading and spelling activities. In PE, we will doing hockey and dance, and some videos of our dance routines will be posted so watch this space!. Science we will be learning about space and planets and stars. RE will be looking at sacred places and they’re significance to those that use them. In Geography we will be looking at the the environment and how we should care for it. Finally we will continue with our programming and using coding. So let’s get ready for the fun times ahead!
Welcome back and Happy New Year to all parents, carers and children from all in Class 1. We hope you have had a lovely Christmas and well deserved break. This term our theme is ‘Tomorrows World’ and we have started in class 1 by learning about Space. We have started the theme looking at the story Whatever Next. The children made their own rockets and went into Space with their capes to see where they think Baby Bear could have gone in his rocket, they produced some fabulous writing after this. We look forward to seeing where this theme takes us next.
Welcome back from the Christmas holidays. This term our theme is ‘Tomorrow’s World’. We have already started to learn about space exploration facts in our literacy with the aim of writing a non-fiction text in our first Big Write. This will be followed up with some science fiction stories. We are continuing with daily reading and spelling activities. Those children who have supplemented their spelling practice with practice at home have been very successful when tested and are now incorporating these spellings into their writing. In PE, we will doing hockey and dance, and hopefully will post some videos of our dance routines. Science we will be investigating light and dark and forces. Our artwork has already started with making of rockets and planets. RE will look at Faith founders and in Geography the environment and how we should care for it. Finally we will continue with our programming on purple mash and learn how to communicate via email. All the children have their own logins and are welcome to use any of the programs on purple mash which are both safe to use and educational, all you need is internet access. There are plenty of stories to read on serial mash using the same login, please contact Mr Watson if you don’t have you child’s login details. It promises to be an exciting term, so get ready for blast off!
This term in PE we are doing hockey with Mr Dunham. The first game we played to warm up was ‘bathroom tig’. After this we did some dribbling skills and then were put into teams. We played ‘pirates’ and had to dribble the ball to get gold and then the team with the most ‘gold’ won. We finished the hockey by playing small sided games. By Kaylah Devine Year 3.

If you unable to make this date, please speak with the class teacher to arrange an appointment.
The whole school managed to get to the final service at St Andrew’s Church, although it was a little damp on the way back. The children sung beautifully and there was a great contribution to the nativity story from Class 1 read by Jacob and Lois. Rev Philip West concluded with a pray and a big thank you goes to Mr Shaw for playing the church organ.
Lois Chelu (Year 6) wrote this great report about the Class 1 nativity (which we all absolutely loved)
This week Class 1 have produced a wonderful play of the nativity. Everyone taking part did an amazing job at their stage positions and remembering their lines. There was two beautiful solos sang by Izzy Carlill (Narrator) and Lucie Webster (Angel). Mary (Kaleesi Gravell) and Joseph (Alfie Morris) did a great job at recreating the iconic couple. Thank you to Mr Shaw for playing the piano the whole way through and adjusting to the children’s voices. Also thank you to Miss Doney, Mrs Watts and Mrs Beadle for organizing everything and helping the children practise for the huge performance! Well done Class 1, I really loved it, as did we all!!!
Here is the video of Class 1’s brilliant Nativity this year, big co congratulations to all involved as it was absolutely brilliant.
Pics and a write up written by one of our Year 6s to follow.
A number of individuals in class 2 have received star awards for teamwork and their homework. There has been some fantastic homework completed by the children. We have shared their flags, family trees, recipes, quizzes and artwork. It has been interesting and pleasing to see all the different things the children have done at home. Well done!
Last week, i gave out three star awards to members of Class 3. The first being for Shaun, Shaun has continued to impress me since starting in Year 5 with his beautiful and eloquent writing that he produces. He uses fantastic vocabulary, it is always excellently structured and he always sets the bar not only for the work he produces but for his beaviour and attitude in the classroom. Well done Shaun.
The second star award was for Max. I have been much more impressed with Max these last few weeks as he has been a lot more focused and is applying himself more in lessons all the time as well as being more productive and joining in more with discussions. Great work Max.
The third and final star award was for Tom. Tom did a super job in his Big Write last week, not only did he get his head down and behave impeccably, he also tried extremely hard to include grammar devices he wouldn’t normally use as well as focusing on improving his spelling and handwriting throughout. Well done Tom!
Kacey won the National Grid Competition for naming the tunnelling machine. The machine is tunnelling from the South bank to the North bank of the Humber to install a new gas pipeline. The National Grid asked Paull Primary and Goxhill Primary to put forward entries and Kacey was named the lucky winner. She named the tunnelling machine after Mary Fergussion the first female civil engineer in Britain and provided a picture of what she thought the machine would look like. Well done to Kacey.
Yesterday afternoon, Class 3 were fortunate enough to look at real life pigs hearts after studying hearts in Science for the past half term. Children had the chance to hold the hearts as well as look inside the different ventricles, veins and arteries to understand more about how the blood flows around the body and is pumped through the heart.
All the children were very mature and behaved very well. Big thanks to Mrs Davies for coming in and helping us as a big thank you to Mr Johnston for supplying the hearts.
Class 3 have been working super hard this morning on their last Big Write of 2017. We have had lots of fun over the past few weeks looking at the Christmas adverts of 2017 and today’s Big Write is all about Paddington Bear & the Christmas Visitor! Hopefully parents will enjoy it just as much, when they see them next week! Thanks to all parents who write encouraging and super comments on the children’s big writes, you can really see them putting in that extra effort to make you all proud 🙂
Today in class 2 we have been practising our division skills using objects, bar modelling and multiples knowledge to solve division calculations. In the afternoon, we did an investigation into different electrical conductors using a torch circuit. We found out that most materials that conduct electricity are metals, however the centre of an art pencil also conducts electricity. We also learn about fair testing and make conclusions about our findings.
Our Christmas carousel this year was expertly organised by Mrs Threlfall. The children were mixed into four groups to make different Christmas decorations and artwork. Parents joined us during the morning sessions and we played Christmas songs. It was a super day and many of the decorations were sold to raise money for school fund and FOPs. It was enjoyed by everyone. The only question was ‘Is November too early to start Christmas?’
This afternoon, Class 1 and Class 3 joined together to create some Christmas art to help make the school look more festive. They created wreaths for the doors and use paint with their fingers to create tree and light pictures. It was a great afternoon which allowed the older children to help the younger children and gave the younger children a bit more independence to work on their own art stuff. All children did a great job and the school is looking much brighter in time for Christmas!
Today we started looked at fractions in Class 3 and to begin with we broke it down into really simple steps so the children could visualise what a fraction is and what fractions are equivalent to one another. They did this by making and building their own fraction wall. This will hopefully help embed the knowledge of fractions for the more challenging work to come.
On Friday evening, some of the children ventured back to school lifted out in their pyjamas and comfy things, some even brought nearly their whole bedroom! We all sat down together and watched the Polar Express. It was truly a magical evening that was thoroughly enjoyed by all! The kids loved spending time with their friends whilst eating pizza, popcorn and hot chocolate. Thanks to everyone involved who made it a super special night!!
On Thursday, the whole school took a short trip down to the Village Hall to watch a special pantomine put on by Chaplins. The story of Aladdin was enjoyed by all: children and staff. Loads of laughter, cheers and the occasional boo! A fantastic afternoon out, big thanks to FOPS for arranging it all 🙂
If anyone didn’t get a chance to come to fair, or has had a change of heart or just wants another look at the Christmas decorations and crafts the children made, then you’re welcome to come into Class 3 to have a look and purchase some more 🙂
Not all tickets were claimed and there are some prizes left over:
Prizes are in the office if you have one of these lucky tickets.
Our yearly celebration of St Andrew’s church took place at the school. Unfortunately, due to the weather we we unable to get to the church. Rev. Philip West retold the story of Saint Andrew and when Jesus fed hundreds of people with two fish and five loaves. The children beautifully sung a few hymns and Rev West concluded with a pray. It was go to see a good turn out of parents and carers at our service. Maybe next year the weather will be kind and we can have the service at the church.
Tomorrow Paull Primary school will be holding their annual Christmas Bazaar!
The children were hard at work yesterday creating lots of amazing crafts including baubles and decorations as well as making some reindeer hot chocolate! All children’s crafts will be available to buy at the fair and will be priced between 50p and £1.
Local businesses are also coming to sell some fantastic gifts, items and stocking fillers such as hand made jewellery, cards, hair accessories, toiletries and cakes!
There will also be a festive photo booth, book stall, lucky dip, tombola, raffle and different games as well as festive refreshments.
Fun for all the family awaits as well as a visit from Santa Claus himself!
Please come and have a look around, doors open for the stalls @ 3pm and then the games, activities and refreshments start @ 3:30!
Can’t wait to see you all there for a wonderful afternoon 🙂
Class 2 have been learning about electricity and electrical circuits. This week the children have made an electrical circuit for a torch and drawn the circuit using electrical symbols. They used two pieces of tinfoil to simulate the switch. The children enjoyed the activity and were all successful in making the torch circuit work.
Today Alex Duffy from Viking FM came to school to hear some of our best jokes as part of their 20 schools in 20 days. Our jokes were recorded and we hope that they will be on the breakfast show on Thursday at 8:10am (to avoid disappointment and missing the jokes you might want to listen to the breakfast show each day next week!) Thank to Miss Doney for suggesting such a great opportunity for our children to take part in.
On Friday 8th December, children are invited to get on their pyjamas and comfy clothes and come enjoy a festive night of fun at school with all their friends whilst watching a Christmassy film. We will be providing, pizza, popcorn and hot chocolate for the children too!
Tickets are £5 and include all food and drink.
Doors open at 5pm and the film will probably finish around 7:30pm.
Tickets need to be purchased from the office before the day so we know how many people are coming for food orders etc…
See more info below on the poster and we look forward to seeing you there 🙂
It’s taken me a few hours to get this ready and uploaded tonight but I was so excited about doing it all. We had a fab day wearing pajamas, having fun at school and putting on our own talent show, we hope you all enjoyed it and had a great day. We raised just short of £100 for children in need so thank you all for your donations. Check out the video below with all the highlights of a really memorable day! Feel free to like and share with friends and family 🙂
This afternoon in Topic Class 3 were briefly introduced to the Aztecs, we looked at who they were and how they ruled and how they ceased to be. Children as a plenary created a timeline and you can watch that below.
Just before half term, children dressed up for Halloween and all had the chance to learn a spooky routine called the Monster Shuffle. Here is the whole school performance of the dance 🙂
Thanks for watching x
Our topic is still ‘Our World’ for the rest of the half term up until Christmas! We were so impressed by the homework projects we received just before the October holidays with some absolutely incredible pieces of work done by the children!
This half term we have decided to give all children their own Homework Book! In this book you will find 9 different activities. Children can pick 5 of these activities to do and record in their book. The activities to choose from are also in this post below!! There is a great mix of things to try and do and children can put it all in their books, whether it’s written, typed or photos, we can’t wait to see what they do.
There will be chances for children to get support and time at school if it’s needed and work can be printed here if needed. There will also be chances for children to bring their homework books in to show the rest of the class any excellent work they have done to inspire other children. More information will go out about this at a later date.
Class 2 and 3 received their books today and Class 1 will get theirs on Monday, feel free to start and remember that 5 pieces must be done before the Christmas holidays begin and books must be handed in before we break up for the teachers to mark.
Good luck and have fun!!
As you may have already seen, an email was sent out tonight about Children in Need on Friday 17th November! All the children are very excited about the talent show and tickets will be available to get from Miss Nagy and the office first thing on Monday and then all week. Tickets will also be on the door so no panic! Looking forward to seeing all the performances and all the kids dressed in pyjamas, however, they can also wear children in need clothes and merchandise too! Check out the rest of the information below!
This week in Class 3 we have given out 3 star awards.
The first one was for Erin who had created a fantastic homework project about the rain forest with a detailed project book full of wonderful facts and pictures. She also made her own bag too saying Save The Rain forest, great job Erin!
The next was also for a homework project! Tom spent lots of time making a project about different things in the world. There were great pictures and facts and it was all well presented. Great job Tom!
The final star award was for Ava, who has totally impressed me over the last half term and this week! She continually puts her all into everything and is trying so hard in all lessons. She works hard, doesn’t get distracted and is producing some great work and making brilliant progress, big thumbs up for you Ava.
Well done to all you super stars 🙂
Yesterday, the school took part in a samba workshop where they children learnt how to play samba music with different types of instruments. They learnt how to use drums, bells and different shakers and had great (but very loud) fun. Class 1 went first and practiced their performance then performed for the rest of the school then Class 2/3 had a good and performed for Class 1. They did a fantastic job and really enjoyed themselves.
Check out the youtube video of their performances in the previous post!
Here are some pictures!
We have been working on getting our Youtube channel up and running for ages now! Take a look at our first youtube video of the Samba Band Music the kids worked on yesterday afternoon. It includes all children as they all took part in the Samba activity!

Class 1 had a great time this morning unpacking our new ‘Poddeley’ outdoor construction set this morning. We had fun following the instructions and using fab team work to make an obstacle course, den and rocket. We’re looking forward to making some of the other ideas as well as coming up with our own.
Class 2 have been writing instruction texts. The task was to create game using some rather bizarre apparatus. Mr Rowe and Mrs Newby had to try out the children’s games. The instruction text included; headings, bullet points, bossy verbs and a title. Well done to Class 2 – very amusing lesson with quality learning.
Just want to say a big thank you to everyone that came to FOPS Halloween Family night at Paull on Friday night!! It was so busy and such an enjoyable night and great fun was had by all! We managed to raise an incredible £190!! What a fantastic event and thank you all for your contributions and participation! ☺️

This morning, Year 6 have been out in the village delivering all the wonderful products collected by you over the past few days for Harvest festival.
All the food was massively appreciated by all the people that received them and the Year 6s set a great example and did a wonderful job delivering to the elderly residents of the village.
This term, in Science, Class 3 have been looking at Animals and Humans so this week we looked closely at the skeleton and its functions and role. Children in groups then had the opportunity to build their own skeleton using paper plates. It was quite a complex process with lots of drawing, cutting and attaching but they did a great job and got lots out of the afternoon!
As I mentioned the other day, Class 3 have been heavily focusing on the culture of China the past few weeks and their customs and traditions. In art with Mrs T this week, the children created their own paper lanterns. It took lots of listening carefully and following precise instructions but they did a great job and here are some of the finished products.
