Sport at Vernon, is a key part of the curriculum. Children have the opportunity to join many extra-curricular activities in addition to their regular PE lessons. Our PE includes dance, gymnastics and games whereby the children can experience many varied activities. We enjoy the regular sporting opportunities offered in the area, competing against schools in Cheshire and Greater Manchester.
Our school teams enjoyed a successful year in 2017-18 which we hope to continue! An exciting event was Sportsday in June 2018, enjoyed by all the children and parents!
The children at Vernon enjoy several opportuities to try different sports either within lessons or through extra-curricular clubs and visits from outside sporting companies. In the Autumn term we will be attending a tag rugby tournament, Year 5/6 Box football event and the Sportshall Athletics competition at the local high school.
It will be a busy year of sport from now onwards, as we look forward to football matches, the annual cross country event, a tri-golf tournament, a tennis tournament, athletics and many other activities to come!
In addition to these exciting events, we will be deciding on our new “Games Makers,” who will be encouraging all children to participate in “Active 30:30”. This involves the children undertaking 30 minutes of activity in school and 30 minutes of activity at home each day. I am delighted that some classes are already finding interesting ways to move in their lessons!
We believe that, at Vernon, we provide opportunities for all pupils to find an activity that they can enjoy, build team working and develop their skills at all levels.
