Recycled Plastic Art - a number of children across school put themselves forward to take part in this exciting project led by Sarah Turner, a local artist. They turned used plastic bottles into fabulous pieces of art which have been displayed in an exhibition in Nottingham.

An excellent evening Clubbercising with our students and their families. Thank you for bringing lots of energy and enthusiasm. We look forward to more classes next year.

Eco Warriors carry out a litter pick for the Clean For The Queen project

On Wednesday the tenth of February 2016, the Eco-warriors of Arno Vale Junior School planted 5 beech trees on the school grounds. 

Each class in the school has 4 Eco-warriors. Their role is to prevent litter, recycle paper, turn off lights and think about how to take care of the planet. The beech trees were acquired through a grant from the Greenwood Community Tree Scheme.


Yesterday’s special ceremony was attended by the warriors themselves, Mr Rossington (the Head teacher), Miss Carter (Year 3 teacher and Forest School specialist), The Mayor of Gedling and a representative from the Greenwood Trust. 

The children planted 4 of the 5 trees. The final beech was left for the mayor. 

It was a great success, enjoyed by everyone who participated. The children really loved the chance to talk to the mayor too. 

Hopefully, the trees will grow and provide the children with some much needed shade.
