As part of our Easter celebrations Key Stage 2 have been given the challenge of designing and building chariots at home to carry a hard-boiled egg as far as possible without assistance! There will be prizes for the most innovative and creative ideas as well as for the chariot that travels the furthest. Please can all entries be brought into school by Monday 3rd April 2017. Every child in Years 3 to 6 should have brought a letter home this week about this family project.
MATHS FAMILY LEARNING SESSIONS
As you may be aware, this term we have run several family learning sessions. This week a session for Year 3 and 4 parents was held. Parents have reported that they found these sessions helpful and some comments received following these have included “It has given me good ideas to try at home” and “I will try and make maths more fun by playing different games”. We know lots of parents already do maths activities at home such as weighing and measuring for cooking, counting objects, number flash cards, playing board games and counting games. These all help with your child’s learning at school. Thank you to all the parents who have attended these sessions; feedback has indicated that they would like further sessions in the future. We with therefore hopefully run more sessions in the Summer term. Thank you to Miss Vine for organising this family learning.
Just a polite reminder, if we could please ask if slips for trips and activities could be returned by the deadline stated in the letter. Unfortunately the office does not have the time to “chase up” any late replies or payments and if these are not received we will assume your child does not want to go on the trip or activity. If you are unable to pay for the trip by the deadline stated, please speak to the office. Thank you.
We are trying to resolve the issues of parking around school. We have had a meeting with Island Roads and the Isle of Wight Council and shortly a letter will be sent home which hopefully will assist in keeping all pupils at Summerfields safe with the co-operation of all concerned.
We have been informed by a parent that a black “trilby” style hat has been lost at school on World Book Day. Despite a thorough search of school, this has not been found. If your child has brought this home by mistake, please can you return it to school as soon as possible. Thank you.
