The Year 6 leaver’s service went very well today and had a good attendance from parents and carers. Year 6 shared their memories of Paull Primary School. There were three songs accompanied by Mr Shaw on the church organ, who is also leaving us for pastures new. All the Year 6 received their children’s bibles and leaving gifts from FOPS. The service concluded with the pray. Good luck to all the Year 6 and staff leaving Paull, and best of luck in the future.
During our English lesson we have written fables and this morning we had the opportunity to read them to class 1 pupils, I was really excited on the way to school, as I knew we would be reading our fables to class 1. I thought it was really fun and I also enjoyed listening to class 1 read to us.

Yesterday I was invited by the York Regional Talent Club to act a as a ball girl for the England Ladies Football Club. The game was at Queen Ethelburga’s Collegiate, this is a very posh school. When I arrived I had a buffet dinner, which was nice. Before the game started we all sang the National Anthem. England played Ireland. I was positioned behind the goal so had a good view of England’s penalty goal. The final score was 1-1. I had a brilliant day and it was good to see Jess Parks representing England who is also from Hull.

These are some of the photographs of the super homework completed this term. Homework books need to be back in school by Wednesday this week, together with reading books and any Big Write books or Big Maths sheets. A big thank you goes to all the children and their parents for helping them, some very successful results!
Class 2 investigated the effect of distance on the loudness of sound. They used the trundle wheels to measure the distances and recorded their observations on their investigation sheets. They also did a few activities to show the vibrations that cause sounds and how sounds can travel through air. They all enjoyed doing the different activities especially making a string telephone using two plastic cups.
On the transition day last Friday Class 1 were sharing (division) different amounts of bricks into equal groups. They were identifying how many different ways they could find and writing down the calculations. I was very pleased with their efforts in the maths lesson and throughout the day. I am looking forward to developing their learning next year.
Monday of this week we had two performances by Class 2 and 3 of ‘The Pirates of the Curry Bean’. Both shows were an outstanding success. There was plenty of praise given from the parents and relatives. The acting was fabulous, the jokes funny and the singing was excellent. The success of the play is owed to the staff, in particular Mrs Rodgers who selected the play, directed it and managed rehearsals, and most of all the children for magnificent performances. Hope the next ones can be as good.
I just wanted to say a massive well done to all the cast of ‘The pirates of the Curry Bean’ you were absolutely amazing! You have have learnt so many lines and songs I am truly amazed by you all! Just a quick thank to all the parents and grandparents for organising all the costumes they looked fabulous.
Class 1 have taking part in Forest Schools activities this afternoon. For the first session the children worked in groups to collect different materials around the play area, they then had to make a picture using the materials. During the second session the children worked as one group to build a den. We tested the den to see if it was waterproof. Some children did get a little wet! A great afternoon had by all Class 1.
Over the past week Class 1 have been looking at the different countries we have been competing against in the World Cup. They have learnt facts about each country and written reports. Today the children have worked in groups to create a flag using different collage materials which will be displayed in the classroom.
Year 2 went to South Holderness Technology College to do multiskills sports. They were split into different groups with pupils from other schools and did various different sporting activities including skipping, football and bowling. The children really enjoyed themselves and the weather was fantastic. A big thank you goes to the STHC pupils and staff for running the event.
The teams in this year’s sports day were named after countries in the world cup. We had Brazil, Nigeria, France and Spain. The children made flags and banners for the first part of the day followed by the morning sports events. Points were awarded for the different places in these – javelin, standing long jump, bean bag throw and hurdles. In the afternoon the running events took place and this year the teams were playing for the new ‘Sports Day’ shield. The children had an exciting day from start to finish. The first team to win this shield were the red team ‘Spain’, although the blue team ‘France’ ran them close in the end. A big thank you goes to all the staff for their efforts helping and organising activities, and parents and relative for watching. Good weather and a super day!
Poppy from Year 5 read ‘Noah’s Ark’ and asked the assembly some excellent questions to check their understanding. The story readings in assembly by Class 3 have been fantastic with lots of thought going into the questions and identification of the moral within the stories. Next week is Erin from Year 4.
Class 2 have been continuing learning about measuring using different units this week. Following on from the measurement of length, this week involves the measurement of mass. The children used the balances and weights to find out the mass of different objects within the class. They recorded their measurements in grams and kilograms.
Pictures of the homework completed for the Summer term will be added to this post as they come in. The first was Lillie with some delicious buns shared with the whole class. Followed by a super poem from Lottie and fantasy castle drawing from Joshua. The newest photographs are Carter with super poem about a fantasy creature and some excellent work from Tye who completed all four pieces. Well done so far!
Many thanks to all those who helped support the fantastic efforts of the Year 6 fund raising on Friday 8th. The year 6s are very grateful for the wet sponges being thrown and money spent in buying ‘build-a-bears’, cakes, plants and other items on the table top sale. In total, they raised just short of £200! Huge thanks again to all and well done the Year 6s. They are currently all having a great time on the residential and looking forward to tomorrow’s activities starting with breakfast at 7:20!!
Today we had a coach called Phil who came in and was talking about heath and safety on our bikes. He used to be in the Olympics. He taught us best way to set off, how to go around corners and we did races. We liked going on the ramps and doing limbo. Class 1 said I liked to race, limbo on bikes, biking around in circles and going over the ramps. We really enjoyed the day, thank you.

The children who represented the school at Quad kids were fantastic and did the school proud. Everyone put maximum effort into all four events – long jump, throw, 50m and 400m. A big thank you goes to the staff and pupils at SHTC for organising the event, the parents for getting the children there and those children who took part.
The children were asked to measure the perimeter of the football court and how far they could jump. They used trundle wheels and metre rulers. They had to record their results in different ways and show how they had calculated the perimeter. It was a great task for learning and a lovely day to do it.
All the year 6 children have been very busy this morning working hard to tidy up the schools outdoor area. The children have been painting, weeding and are in the process of making a pond. The children are going to be getting paid for all their hard work. All the money raised by this afternoons various activities will go towards their residential trip.
Class 2 continued to write instructions in preparation for their ‘Big Write’ tomorrow. Today they wrote instructions for making a dragon head with fire. Another great activity with some detailed and clear work. The children will look at how they can improve their work before completing a ‘Big Write’.
Year 2 followed on from the morning maths lesson and practised measuring using a tape measure. They measured their bodies and made half sized models of themselves. The children used fabric tape measures and measured to the nearest centimetre then halved their measurements to make models of themselves. They really enjoyed the activity and here are the results.
The children have come back to school raring to go. We have a very busy 7 weeks to look forward to. In literacy we are going to be looking at the countries linked to the World Cup and doing lots of research about these countries. In maths we are going to be looking at halving, sharing and fractions. Our topic work is going to be based on our bodies and how to stay healthy. This morning the children have set the outside areas up with their own choice of activities including digging for diamonds, the dinosaurs lost world and a fossil exploration table.
Yesterday our teachers took us to William’s Den. We really liked the team work. We did 4 activities which were den building, a minibeast hunt, making mud pies and the stepping stone challenge. We also really enjoyed sitting outside with the teachers and our friends to eat our dinner. We were allowed to get very dirty and dig in the ground, we found worms.The indoor play was lots of fun although we all got lots of sand in our shoes. The tent where we dropped our bags off was really big, it was bigger than my house. Everyone was smiling all day. Thank you to the F.O.P,S who helped pay for our trip. My favourite part of the day was making mud pies with Mrs Beadle. Paull Primary School is the best school ever and so are all the teachers.

We have had a court case this morning, the children took the roles of judge, jury, attorneys, the 3 little pigs and the big bad wolf. The pigs were arrested for grievous bodily harm of the big bad wolf. They did really well keeping in character and demonstrating bias, persuasion and great listening skills.
In this week’s assembly Lois (Year 6) read the bible story ‘Jonah and the Whale’ to the whole school. She read the story beautifully, told the children about the moral of the story and ask some excellent questions. This was a perfect start to our bible stories during Wednesday assemblies. Next week is Shaun from Class 3.
Class 2 did a science investigation to see which muscles in our body are the strongest. We found out that our leg muscles are the strongest after trying squats, sit ups and press ups in 60 seconds. We managed a class average of 60 squats compared to 34 sit ups. Hopefully no one will be aching tomorrow !
Today in Class 1 we wrote letters to The Govenors to ask if we could keep our chicks as they grow into chickens. It has been a great experience to watch them hatch from an egg, decide what to call them and learn how to keep them healthy. The children especially enjoy the times when they come out of their hutch for a run on the carpet! Here are some examples of our letters and photos of us having a cuddle this afternoon.
Today Class 2 went to Beverley to play some cricket. There were four schools split up into teams. Each team played games with different leaders and there were nine places to go. We got to have a go with a bat and ball, throwing balls and catching balls. We really enjoyed ourselves and the weather was lovely. By Jasmine & Kacey
The Year 3/4 children played a football tournament at STHC and only went on to reach the final. Paull drew two and won two with goals from Kacey, Ethan and Kai. The team preformed superbly winner their group with 8 points and on goal difference. Out of ten teams Paull being the smallest school reached the final and managed to draw with Preston. They finally lost on penalties but what an excellent evening for the school, second place which better the performance of two third places at the small school event in previous years. A great night was had by all the team Erin, Evie, Jasmie, Kacey, Kai, Tyler and Benjamin. A big thank you to the SHTC pupils and staff for organising the event. Can’t wait for next year!
Class 2 have been working hard this week. We have been learning about muscles and played a kahoot quiz about skeletons and muscles. In English we have wrote some descriptive sentences and in maths learnt about the months of the year. There has been some good learning including going outside to do some reciprocal reading. Can’t wait for lots more sunshine!
