Thank you to everyone for all the lovely cards and presents that have been given to the staff at Summerfields. We really do appreciate such kind gestures. Well done to everybody at the Leavers Assembly who won an award. Good luck to Year 6 at their new schools and we look forward to seeing everyone else back at school on WEDNESDAY 2ND SEPTEMBER 2015. Have a great holiday everyone!
GOODBYE & GOOD LUCK!
We wish Miss Emily Metcalfe a fond farewell as she goes off to university to do her teaching degree. Good luck Emily, we all know you’re going to be a great teacher!
UNIFORM FOR SEPTEMBER
Just a reminder that if you need any new uniform, this is available from Kids and Co in Ryde. Please remember children should only have grey trousers and skirts and not black. Socks should also ALL be grey, unless girls are wearing the Summer uniform when they must be white. Can we also ask parents of children in Years 4, 5 and 6 when buying a bag for your child to bring to school, please consider its size. Please remember there are 90 coat pegs in a very small space. There is not much room for 90 coats and satchels or sturdy bags. Remember your child’s PE kit should be kept in a separate bag, as these are now stored elsewhere. Something like a rucksack is ideal but anything without rigid corners. Children should not need a large bag—just one big enough for their lunch, pencil case and reading book. Please save “fashion” for home and think practically for school. Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.
WHOLE SCHOOL TRIP
We hope everyone enjoyed our whole school trip to Robin Hill this week. Thank you to all the staff who accompanied the children and ensured that a great time was had by all!

THINGS TO DO BEFORE YOU ARE 11¾ …
Dig a pool and try to keep it full of seawater. Water wants to drain away through sand but if you keep on digging deep the water will eventually start puddling at the bottom of your hole. It can be hard work but the nearer the sea you dig, the easier this will be!
WORD OF THE WEEK
The word of the week is “harmonious”.
WHOLE SCHOOL TARGET
Have a great holiday! But remember to try and help out at home as much as you can.
