Welcome to all the new children that have started at Summerfields this week. Everyone seems to be settling in really well. Welcome back to Mrs Lane who has rejoined us after her year of travelling. We all look forward to another successful year at Summerfields.
Please remember school is CLOSED to pupils next Thursday 11th and Friday 12th September 2014. Thank you.
UNIVERSAL INFANT FREE SCHOOL MEALS
We hope that children in Year 1 and Year 2 are enjoying the introduction of the Universal Infant Free School Meals. If your child has not yet tried them, please ask at the school office for details.
PLEASE remember that if you think your child or children are entitled to Free School Meals, you need to still apply for these. If you are entitled then school receives extra funding in the form of “pupil premium”. This is then used to support children in school, for example assistance with the cost of school trips. If you think you may be entitled, please ask at the school office.
KEY STAGE 1 CLOAKROOM AREA
As per our letter earlier this week, the building work on the Key Stage 1 cloakroom area is unfortunately still not completed. As part of the renovations the water fountain has been removed. There is still access to clean, cold water but children MUST bring in a water bottle which can be refilled as unfortunately school cannot provide cups for children to use.
POMPEY IN THE COMMUNITY FOOTBALL
The next set of sessions starts on Tuesday 9th September for 7 weeks until 21st October 2014. The club runs from 3pm until 4pm and the cost for the half term is £24.50. All sessions must be paid for in advance and booking is essential. Please contact Pompey in the Community directly on 02392 728899.
MEALTIME SUPERVISORY ASSISTANT
If you are interested in applying to become a “relief” Mealtime Supervisory Assistant (MSA) at Summerfields, please ask at the school office for further details.
“RE-USE YA SHOES WEEK”
We are again taking part in this fundraising event for the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance. ALL types of shoes, regardless of condition as long as they are dry, can be donated: trainers, pumps, slippers, sandals, rugby/football boots, wellington boots, etc. Even if they are really worn out, parts of shoes can be reused. Please bring in your donations between Monday 15th and Friday 19th September 2014. A small number of collection bags will shortly be available in the lobby but any bag will do. Many thanks.
Please can we ask that dogs are not left unattended tied to the school railings. They often bark and can intimidate children and adults that have to walk by them. Thank you for your co-operation.
PRE-LOVED CLOTHING AND TEXTILE SALE
On Saturday 13th September 2014 from 10am to 1pm the Isle of Wight Foodbank are holding a good quality, branded name, second hand clothes sale at the Foodbank Centre, Love Lane, Cowes. Tea, coffee, cake and tombola will also be available. “Turning fashion into Food”.
THINGS TO DO BEFORE YOU ARE 11¾ …..
Eat an apple straight from a tree. The ripest apples are on the outside branches, furthest away from the trunk! Don’t eat raw cooking apples though—they could give you a tummy ache! Remember to ask before you pick apples from someone else’s tree!
WORD OF THE WEEK
The word of the week is ambitious.
