A very special visitor came to Vernon yesterday! He brought lots of gifts for all the children and visited each class (from a distance and outdoors in the playground and outside areas...Santa has to be very careful this year!). The children were so excited to see him, wave and cheer! Thank you to Santa's little helpers for all the treats and to the busy man himself for coming to Vernon! Merry Christmas!

Exciting news - Quick Pics is now available for parents!
Parents can now sign up to view their children(s) images without needing to wait for the ticket (distributed on the day of photography) to be brought home, or if the card has not made it home at all!
Once you have created an account with us, you can add your child’s names to your account and during the course of the academic year we will pro-actively notify you that there are images to view.
To thank parents for their continued support during these difficult times we are offering 10% discount on ALL our products and FREE delivery until the end of 2020.
You need to access your images using QUICK PICS and then enter the code NOV2020 at the checkout.
Our last day for ordering, for postal dispatch before Christmas is midnight 17th December 2020.
How it works
- Parents click on the link, this is unique for your school
- Either create an account or login into your existing account with us. (Please note, this is a new website and no accounts prior to June 2020 exist, although we will be moving the accounts to our new site in January 2021)
- Once in the account the Unique School Code will be populated with your unique school number, but in case it is not, your Unique School Code for our site is:
- You can simply add your children to your account by name. If the images are available you will be able to view and order them immediately.
- If they are not online yet, you will receive notification when they are ready.
Quick Pics allows us to notify parents that images are available during the academic year without the need for proof cards to be distributed, for any of the photographs we take. Another way we are making our service COVID SAFE.
Keep safe and have a great Christmas.

Advice to Schools for Children Presenting with non-Covid Typical Symptoms
In addition to the 3 main Covid-19 symptoms if a child or adult experiences sickness / diarrhoea, headaches, unexplained tiredness, muscle and body aches, nasal congestion and a sore throat they should be advised to speak to the school before attending. An outcome of this conversation may be an agreement to self-isolate at home for 48hrs and request a test if symptoms persist or worsen. If the test is returned negative and the child / adult has been diarrhoea and fever free for 48hours they can return to school.
This update has been circulated as we have had reports from a number of settings where people have had these minor symptoms then have subsequently tested positive so we are suggesting that schools may wish to use this approach as a prevention measure as it may reduce the need to have a whole bubble or year group having to isolate.
Growing Evidence from school is that children and adults are presenting with a variety of symptoms and are then testing positive.
This information in relation to non-COVID typical symptoms is intended to be helpful by sharing the learning to date of how settings have managed multiple children experiencing these symptoms. The DfE is aware of this advice and are satisfied that this is appropriate information based on the local knowledge of Cheshire East’s Public Health Team.
The intention is to strengthen the advice to school and college leaders to be extra vigilant in assessing the risks of staff or students attending who are unwell. This is in line with the government’s guidance re managing infectious diseases in schools, which recommends excluding pupils or staff for 48 hours after symptoms have stopped for a number of infectious diseases.
The school’s risk assessment in relation to a child or member of staff returning to school after non-COVID symptoms should be in the context of the situation and include the following areas of consideration, ie, whether the pupil or staff member:
- Has been in contact with any confirmed COVID cases in school
- Is aware of any possible contact with anyone outside school who may have COVID
- Has regularly or previously suffered from this illness
- Would normally stay away from school with their symptoms
- Has similar symptoms to other cases in the setting who have gone on to develop COVID
After this assessment you will be able to identify the best plan of action. The decision in each case will depend on the specific circumstances, but could include returning to school, self-isolating for 48 hours or requesting a COVID test.

New members of 5MW
The magic of Christmas has certainly arrived in 5MW this week as we welcomed our two elves, Elliot and Virgo. We had a special parcel delivered to our classroom and inside we found a letter from Father Christmas explaining that our class had been chosen to recieve two Christmas elves. The children voted for their names, and as they have been enjoying our guided reaing book so much this half term, have chosen to name them after the two main characters. Elliot and Virgo will remain in their elf isolation station until the 1st of December, as they have travelled all the way from the North Pole. We can't wait to see the adventures they get up to in our classroom!

Mrs Evans' class have been looking at plants. The children were working on naming different parts of a flower. They were given a flower to take to pieces and match the parts to a diagram. They thoroughly enjoyed looking closely at the flower and can now name some parts and their functions. Have a look in the gallery for some photos.

The children really enjoyed creating circuits in the afternoon. They used batteries, bulbs and wires. We also discussed what else could be added into a circuit, and the purposes of a switch. We are going to be introducing a switch and a buzzer next lesson. Please see the photo gallery for pictures!
