Welcome to our School Website
A warm welcome to Paull Primary School. Our school is in the small village of Paull in the East Riding of Yorkshire. We have 74 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. Read more click here >>>

The final church service for Year 6 was conducted by Rev Sue Pulko. The Year 6 children read out their memories in between the traditional hymns for the our leavers and were presented with their own bible. Mr Rowe read some of the staff memories of the children and the Reverent concluded the service with a pray. Good luck to all the Year 6 on their next part of their educational journey.
Today the children have had a very messy Forest Schools session. The children have taken a particular interest in worms lately so we have made a wormery. First of all the children looked at a power point telling them all about worms and the purpose of them. Then we went outside to find and collect our own worms, this was very interesting. Once we had collected enough worms we came inside to look at the worms under a magnifying glass. We then made a wormery using a large plastic bottle. The children will be watching the worms over the last week of term before putting them back outside.
As the whole school had a transition day yesterday, Year 6’s (year 7’s for the day) had a great day talking about and addressing their worries for their new school. After this we were able to enjoy our afternoon and even had time to squeeze in a bit of reading with class one, both classes worked lovely together and read really well.
Class 1 have finished the Debutots sessions which were thoroughly enjoyed by the EYFS children. All of them received a certificate for their hard work and enthusiasm. The Key stage 1 children have been doing some mini tests for common spellings and minute maths. The children who made the most progress received Star Awards, well done to them all. It has been a very busy term and the children have coped well.
Yesterday we were lucky enough to have David Smith come into the school and share his experience as a professional High Jumper. He talked to the children about his training programme, things that have inspired him within his career and problems he has had to overcome to get where he is today.
He awarded a number of children for their fundraising efforts, a big thank you to everybody who raised money or donated.
We then performed a few of the training techniques he uses day to day, this proved a lot tougher than first thought.
This week has been health week and we have had some very interesting lessons and discussions all about living a healthy life; eating well, getting outside and exercising. Yesterday class 2 took part in a scavenger hunt to find different types of food hidden around the school, they then had to correctly categorise them into the correct food group: Carbohydrates, protein, fruit and vegetables, oils and butters and dairy. Class 2 did brilliantly.
Sports Day was a great success. The children completed the more activities and in the afternoon finished with the running, relay, skipping and egg and spoon races. The weather was kind and the children were happy and energetic. There was a super turnout from the parents and relatives to cheer everyone on. It was great to see a competitive edge from dads, mums and even the toddlers. For the second year running, although with a smaller margin of victory, the red team won. A great day had by all.
We have started our healthy school’s week and done some super activities. Yesterday Class 1 had Hull KR in to deliver a healthy food and exercise programme. Today we did a mixed group activities. In class one there was dance based on the book ‘Giraffe’s Can’t Dance’ and the children danced various dances from the waltz to rock and roll. In Class 3 the children did artwork based on Giuseppe Arcimboldo, who use fruit and vegetables as inspiration for the artwork. Class 2 did artwork based on the human body and the things that were good for it. In the hall we had Danny was doing some fitness testing to see how well the children have progressed with their fitness this year. To end the day Year 4 and some of the older children went swimming. A busy start to the week which the children appeared to thoroughly enjoy. Tomorrow we have a future GB athlete coming to school to talk to the children.
They were set the ‘Towers of Hanoi’ problem: https://www.mathsisfun.com/games/towerofhanoi.html
The children had to find a way of recording the number of moves taken.
They created diagrams using colours and arrows and letters … etc.
Very well done to all in Class 3.
Great problem solving, team work and determination.
Today Class 1 went to William’s Den. The children got to play in the indoor and outdoor playgrounds and build dens. They walked around the meadow collecting leaves and flowers making their journey sticks and artwork. The had lunch outside and finished the day with an ice-cream. They all thoroughly enjoyed themselves running, playing and learning different skills. A super day. A big thanks goes to all the staff and governors who helped supervise the activities and in particular Miss Doney for organising such a super trip.
