Normally at this time of year we’d be holding a Summer Fair and raffle. Sadly, due to Covid-19 restrictions the fair cannot go ahead and we’ve moved the raffle online.
For £3 a ticket you are entered into 12 draws, with 12 chances to win £5000. This is a raffle with other PTAs, not just our school, which is why the prize amount is much higher than normal.
At the moment we’re raising funds to continue enhancing the outdoor spaces and play equipment for the children. Any support is greatly appreciated.
To find out more, and buy your tickets, please go to https://www.bigptaraffle.co.uk/support/vernon-primary-school-sk12 or search for Big PTA Raffle, select to buy tickets and search for Vernon Primary.
Thanks and good luck!

All the children and staff look fabulous in their green and blue outfits and the kitchen even made us some blue and green cake to help us celebrate!
We were so lucky to be chosen as the school to receive the virtual visit from The Royal Manchester Childrens' Hospital Charity patrons Max and Harvey. The children were treated to a live performance of their songs plus a question and answer session to the fabulous duo. Mrs Currall will be collecting with her bucket in the playground again at the end of school and will share the total raised next week. A huge thank you to everyone who has donated to this fantastic charity.

Year 3 had a wonderful Space Day yesterday. The day began with them introducing themselves as their aliens. They had very creative ideas and all spoke very clearly. There were lots of different activities throughout the day. In the morning, they explored the constellations and created them for partners to guess using marshmallows and cocktail sticks. There was a competition to create a spacecraft and see which one would fly the furthest. The day ended with a treasure hunt around school tracking down the planets and aliens that lived on them. Everyone had lots of fun and one child commented that the day was "out of this world!" Have a look in the Year 3 Space Day gallery for photos of the day.

This afternoon, we had a very messy time! We were learning about the digestive system and how we get nutrition from our food. We recreated our digestive system using a plastic bag, tights and a cup. It has helped us to remember the process our food goes through in our body. There are a few photos in the Year Three gallery of our afternoon.
