Newsletter 17/17


We would like to welcome our new Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) to Summerfields.  Mrs Sarah Luke joined us at the beginning of term and has already had the opportunity to meet some families.  We wish her well in her new role at Summerfields.  Our best wishes go to Mrs Bowen who is sadly still poorly.



Unfortunately the Year 5 assembly has had to be moved from Thursday 16th February 2017 to Wednesday 15th February 2017; it will still be at 2.50pm.  We have also decided to “dress up” for  World Book Day on FRIDAY 3rd March 2017 and not Thursday 2nd March 2017.

We have also decided to hold a “Mufti” day on the last day of term, Friday 17th February 2017 in aid of English resources.  Children can come to school in “mufti” for a £1.00 donation.



Don’t forget children in Years 2 to 6 have their own log-ins to use Mathletics at home.  Children can log in and have lots of fun playing against other children in a “safe” environment.  Children can choose which topics they want to practise and the competition element improves their mental maths!  In February we will publish the names of the children with the top three scores.



Music lessons are provided at Summerfields by Wight Music Tuition.  Lessons are offered in a variety of musical instruments.  Currently we have children who have violin and guitar lessons.  For further details about the cost and availability please contact Wight Music Tuition on 295780.



School has been very busy this week.  On Monday it was really good to see Tyler who came to see England Class.  As you are all probably aware Tyler has been extremely unwell and it was really good to see he is finally on the road to recovery.

Also on Monday Years R to 4 enjoyed workshops held by the author of the Zoe and Beans books, Chloe Inkpen.  Barton Primary joined Summerfields for these events and a great time was had by all.  Thank you to Mr Simpson for organising this visit.  Another author is visiting Year 6 very shortly.



We had a very serious incident outside school on Wednesday morning when a child was nearly run over by a reversing car which had been parked on double yellow lines.  PLEASE think of the safety of all children when parking and not just of your own convenience.  This is not the first incident this week: we have also had a parent come in to inform us of cars parked unsafely.  Please can everyone park so children can cross the road safely and see what traffic is approaching.  If cars are parked on the double yellow lines this is not possible.  Thank you.



Eat Well for Less is back on the hunt for households looking to save money on their food shop!  For further details email  or call 0117 970 7635.



Last week every family should have received the latest “on-line” Book Club leaflet.  Books are available to order that are not just in the booklet but also on the website at  Please can any orders be returned to school via the “Green Box” by next Friday 27th January 2017 at the latest.  Please remember payment must be made via credit or debit card as cash cannot be accepted.
