Year 6 Church Service

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.

 

Reading morning with Class 1 and 3

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.

England Ladies Football

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.

Homework in Class 2

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!

   

Science in Class 2 – Sound

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.

Class 1 Maths

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.

‘Pirates of the Curry Bean’

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.

Capacity in Class 2

Today, children were experimenting with capacities and trying to see which container held the largest volume of water. They learnt how to read different scales in millilitres and calculated the difference in the capacity between the containers. A good investigation was had by all.

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.

Year 6 Residential

Well done and thank you to all the Year 6’s for another amazing Paull Primary School residential. Special thanks to Mrs Good for spending hours and ‘days’ on the phone in finding us the residential itself – huge thanks to Skirlaugh Primary too.
The children were brilliant from the start to the very end and took part in all the activities. Some climbed higher than others, some shot straighter in archery, some were more successful in tying knots in buggy building … but they were all great ambassadors for the school and themselves.
It was a pleasure taken all six of the Year 6’s away.
More great memories made.
Mr Rowe and Mrs T.

Class 1 trip to William’s Den by Ruby-Jo

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.
