We took part in World Book day on Thursday 7th March 2019.
All the children and staff made a fantastic effort with their wonderful costumes for the day and they looked amazing! An enormous thank you to all parents/carers for all the hard work, creativity and enthusiastic support!
During the day the children took part in various fun creative reading and writing opportunities to continue to promote a love of books and of reading not just for pleasure, but also for a purpose. Children has the opportunity to read not only with their own class teacher, but with a Mystery Reader (another class teacher) who read and shared their own favourite book.
Hopefully this successful event has inspired us to read even more!

Year 3 went on their residental last week to the Anderton Centre in Chorley.
We had a fantastic time doing a range of different activities and working together as a team. Despite the cold and rain, all children attempted each challenge with a smile on their face (and plenty of mud)!

Year Four have had a very exciting day at Knowsley Safari Park. The day started with a bus tour through the park where a rhino crossed the road right in front of the coach! The tour guide gave lots of facts about the different animals in the park such as lions, bison, antelopes and ostriches. The children then participated in a rainforest workshop learning about creatures that live in the different layers. They had the opportunity, if they were brave enough, to touch cockroaches and snakes! There was a very wet walking tour to the tigers enclosure where the tigers were hiding most of the time due to the rain. The day ended with a sea lion show that the children thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you to the parent helpers who joined us on the day and to the PTA for subsidising the cost of the coach.

World Book Day
Year Four had a wonderful time yesterday for World Book Day. The children came to school in a variety of amazing costumes. Thank you to the parents and carers for their support with this. All the activities were based on Russell and the Lost Treasure by Rob Scotton. The children designed their own super duper treasure seekers, wrote instructions for them and presented them to the class. They also created their own treasure book, taking photos and adding labels. Please see our gallery for photos.

Year 2 had a very exciting day at Chester Zoo despite wet weather conditions. The day started with a super talk from the the staff at Chester Zoo and the children learnt lots of fun facts about living and non living animals. Year 2 then had the chance to explore the Zoo and look at all the exciting animals that live there. Due to the rain some animals were hiding for some of the day but that did not stop Year 2 having a super day! Thankyou to all the parent helpers that came on the trip.

The children enjoyed the Coronation Ceremony where we appointed new Kings and Queens of Vernon Primary School. After the gold crowns were placed delicately on their heads, the audience cheered and applauded their new royal members.
The Kings and Queens have faced many royal tasks sent to us from Buckingham Palace.
They successfully found the owner of a navy blue hat that mysteriously appeared in a suitcase. They worked together to solve the clues and concluded that the missing hat belonged to the Queen! The children were excited to retell and add their own ideas to the story of The Queen's Hat.
In Maths, the royal members have been busy solving addition and subtraction problems, comparing number sentences and assisting the Queen's Guards with their number bonds to help keep the palace running smoothly.
To meet some of the royal members of Year 1, please see the Year 1 Gallery.

School is closed today, Weds 30th January, due to the heavy snow and continuing weather forecast.
Date: 22nd Jan 2019 @ 4:01pm
As the weather turns colder, whilst we hope that we do not experience severe weather, I would like to outline the procedure which will be followed by the school, in the event of a school closure.
School will remain open if it is safe to access the building and as long as there are enough teachers able to get on site to supervise the children. If the decision is made by the Senior Leadership Team that the school will not open in the morning the following will happen:
- A Spider message will be sent to all Parents/Carers advising them of the closure.
- The answer phone message will be changed stating whether school is to remain open or closed.
- Silk 106.9 will be contacted to make announcements on their programmes
- An alert will appear on the school website homepage stating that school will be closed.
- A message will appear on the PTA Facebook page.
If the decision is made to close the school early during the school day you will be sent a Spider message and your child/ren will be kept safe in school until you arrive to collect them. They should be collected from their classrooms in the usual way.
If you have any queries regarding this procedure please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you and kind regards
Mrs S Kiely
