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 in the Early Years have shown an interest in the police force. We have made a police station/prison cell in class 1. Yesterday the children were lucky enough to look around a replica prison cell, brought in to school by Prison Me No Way. All the children agreed that they much preferred being police officers rather than prisoners.
Class 1 have had yet another busy day. The whole class have been measuring length. Foundation Stage (FS) were looking at their heights and comparing different lengths, then shorting them into sizes. Year 1 were measuring objects using bricks and Year 2 were measuring in centimetres using rulers. FS had a play and stay, with a couple of parents able to join in the creative activities. Key Stage 1 did a science investigation into different materials that reduced the volume of sounds. Finally, the children had their evacuee pictures taken with their name tag, suitcase and gas mask box. A very busy but enjoyable day!
This weeks Star Awards went to: Evie for trying hard in her reading paper and showing such a massive improvement, Fantastic Evie, well done! Our second award went to Kaylah for having a great attitude within lessons, this full week she has tried so hard, helping others and staying positive. Well done girls.
Mrs Collier and Mr McLoughlin came into school to share their knowledge and artefacts of World War II with the children. They had some great knowledge of the period and the children asked some interesting and intelligent questions. It was great to see family members and friends come in to show off their collections and share their interests. The children have really had some super first hand experiences. Thank you.
Class 1 children have had a very busy Monday! We were visited by Catherine Conyard from ‘History to Life!’, who had lots of world war 2 facts and activities for us. We were code breakers, learned all about rationing (and promised to eat all of our lunch as a result!) we tried on some helmets and jackets to see how soldiers on the front lines dressed, and we were shocked at how heavy the helmets and some jackets were! As if that wasn’t a busy enough day we’ve also been organising facts about Roald Dahl into chronological order so we can use those as a basis for a biography on the author which we will be compiling throughout this week in literacy! We even had time to make gas mask boxes to go with our evacuee labels. Phew!
Today we were lucky enough to have a special visitor who taught us lots of interesting information about the Second World War. To begin we looked at a timeline of events leading to WW2 and how this effected life back home, we learnt all about the blackouts and different countries joining the war, following on from this we separated into groups and conducted investigations into old newspapers, comparing the differences between these old papers and ones we may see today. From this Class two and three learnt about the Enigma codes and we decoded a real message from the Germans. We then had the opportunity to look at different outfits from WW2, these included British and German uniforms. This was a fantastic day and we all learnt lots of new information about the Second World War, the war to end all wars.
The children in class 1 have been doing some dances with Miss Newby from Sportsability and have demonstrated some super movement and routines. They have also been writing instructions. They made victory flags linked with World War 2 and wrote their instructions. From the big writes the children have produced some super work. Well done!
This afternoon Class 1 came into the classroom to the water tray full of plastic and fish. The children were asked to discuss what they saw. The children made some very good comments on what they saw. The next task for the children was to work in small groups and research plastic in the ocean. The children found out some very interesting facts. 12.7 million tonnes of plastic end up in the ocean each year, plastic is taking over the world, 100,000 animals are killed by plastic each year! The children were very surprised by the facts. We discussed ways to reduce plastic in the ocean including correctly recycling. Finally the children designed their own poster to raise awareness. We hope that after what the children have found out today they will help to reduce plastic in our oceans.
In Maths we have been measuring and on Wednesday Mr Rowe came in and we measured ourselves.
We measured our ‘fathom’ which was finger tip to finger tip and our heights – to see if they were the same.
We also measured the circumference of our heads and times this by three to see if this measured the same as our height.
Finally, we measured our ‘femur’ (biggest bone in our bodies) and times this by four to see if this was also the same as our height.
Why not give these measures a go yourself and see if any are the same as your height.
Well done Class 2 on a fun measuring lesson.
