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 children have had another busy week in FS! They’ve enjoyed new activities in the sand and water trays, each reception child wrote a sentence in literacy and we’ve looked at different activities related to shape. The children also helped Miss Lister to prepare the mud kitchen for next week by splitting jelly cubes equally into bowls and adding plastic creepy-crawlies for a Halloween-esque sensory experience next week. We performed with the rest of class 1 our Kitchen Disco dance on Friday to the school, parents and the local vicar- well done, Class 1!
Another great afternoon at Kelsey. The children are extremely confident on the water and have shown they can paddle in different directions and at speed! They tried hard to catch Mr Rowe, but he evaded their attempts to drench him – most of the time. Well done to all the children in Class 3 – really enjoyed the kayaking and canoeing and made it a joy to take along and see them participate with smiles. Thanks also to Mr Watson for organising the sessions and Captain Vince and Pirate Ian for their instruction.
Miss Lister has been thinking hard about what the FS outdoor area could use to make it a more developed and engaging area. She’s been asking around to see if anybody has any spare pallets, as she thinks it would look amazing if we had a custom built reading area and a roleplay structure that could become anything!
If you know of anyone who can offer any pallets or old Wendy Houses to our outdoor area, please let Miss Lister or Mr. Watson know.
Class 1 have been busy today. We’ve been learning about Florence Nightingale and sequencing events of her life. Following this we have learnt how to subtract in columns with renaming, a difficult concept to learn for young children. In the afternoon, we have been discussing a healthy lifestyle including exercise, good eating, sleep and positive well-being. The children looked at the different food groups then designed their own healthy pack lunch which was a balance diet. We also observed the difference in our heart rate, breathing and temperature of our skin before and after exercise. Great effort from all.
The children in foundation embraced Thursday’s yellow theme! We briefly discussed that it’s a special day because we’re thinking about anyone who feels sad or worried and we will strive to be a friend to all. Today’s happiness ambassador was Mac, who had the task of being a friend to anyone who felt sad or lonely.
This week in Foundation we have looked at how tall we are and measured each other (including Miss Lister), started working with addition problems in maths and did story sequencing in literacy.
The children have enjoyed helping Miss Lister and Mrs Greggory, by painting fruit which will be used for Harvest Assembly.
We have also started to revisit phase 2 in phonics to consolidate our knowledge.
This week we’ve been very busy in Foundation! In literacy we’ve been looking at speech used in our focus book for this half term ‘Funny Bones’, the reception children did a really good job of creating some speech based on a picture prompt and using their phonics to write the words. In maths we’ve been fine-tuning our numeral recognition skills and have started writing numbers by chalking on the playground and even wrote an equation on Friday in pairs! In maths this week we have also worked well in teams to play bingo and to do our sums.
We’ve been exploring our different outdoor toys by creating dens to play in and using the phone to talk to each other. We will be learning more about different forms of communication in IT next week. In our doctors surgery we now have medical supplies thanks to Zak’s mum. The children must think that Miss Lister is very poorly with all the bandages, medicine bottles, pretend injections and heart checks with the stethoscopes that she has received this week! Earlier this week we worked together to build a junk model Ambulance which the children absolutely love to play with. Alfie also made some fab junk model Armour and George made a brilliant fire engine.
This week we introduced a ‘Happiness Ambassador’ to the classroom. Each day a child is picked to be the Happiness Ambassador and gets to wear the special lanyard. Their job for the day is to be a friend to anyone who is sad or feeling alone. The children are so far enjoying the responsibility of such an important role.
On Friday we got to go and browse in the Book Bus, there were lots of interesting books to look at. It was lovely to see so many children excited about reading! Friday afternoon we also created skeleton pictures with craft straws, which looked very effective.
In other news, Makenna received a star award for being able to fasten her coat poppers all on her own and Codie received a star award for trying new food at lunch! Finally, Class 1 would also like to wish Miss Doney a big congratulations on the birth of baby James, we really appreciated our visit from them both on Friday afternoon!
The weather was wet and cold for the cross country this year. It was great to see Ruby-Jo, Alfie, Ethan and Erin represent the school. Aflie managed to compete in the Year 3/4 race and did the school proud with his efforts. Ethan came a respectable 8th in the same race. Ruby-Jo ran well and smiled on the way round. Finally, Erin was our only Year 5/6 representative and she completed the course even with a stitch. Thank you to the parents for taking the children, the organisers and most of all the children who ran it. Well done!
Thanks councillors (Mr W) 🙂
