Mr L - Thanks for the message Megs - hope you are enjoying Redhill too!

Mrs James, Mr Harrison, Miss Najuk, Mrs Bullen, Mrs Monaghan and Mr Knight would like to thank all the children who made this year's trip tp PGL so enjoyable. You were a pleasure to take away and you represented our school fantastically. A special mention has to be given to the following children, who appeared in KS2 Good Book this week for their resilience, determination to succeed and positive contributions. They are:

Abigail Moore.

Abigail initially found the kayaking activity very difficult because she was afraid of falling into the lake. She asked to get out of her kayak and sit on the side to watch the other children. During this time, she observed how the children floated on the surface when they fell in and so asked if she could give it another go. She not only got back into her kayak, but thoroughly enjoyed her second go, demonstrating courage and resilience – 2 qualities to be admired. Well done Abi!

Christian Jordan.

Christian became quite homesick on the first evening and wanted to go home. However, after a little persuasion from the adults and encouragement from his room-mates, he agreed to stay the night. On the following day, when asked if he now felt ok, he seemed a little surprised that the adults were even asking him! Well done for sticking it out Christian – just think what you would’ve missed if you had gone home on the first night!

Alex Simpson

Alex was very anxious during the trapeze activity and wanted to stop during the climb. However, he was encouraged by everyone in his group to try to go a little further and eventually managed to climb onto the platform, despite his shaking knees. He even successfully grabbed the trapeze, much to the delight of his friends in the group! Well done Alex – you managed to surprise yourself with that achievement.

Jade Horner.

Mr Knight was very impressed with the ‘have a go’ attitude that Jade demonstrated at PGL. She wasn’t always successful but she was determined to do the best that she could do which was really impressive. Well done Jade, you should be as proud of your achievements as we are.

Oliver Fletcher

Oliver tackled everything at PGL with a quiet determination to succeed. He never pushed to be the first or the best, but just tried really hard at everything. Because of his, he was a pleasure to take and we all really enjoyed his company. He could laugh at himself and enjoyed having fun, but never took it too far. Well done Oliver – you were a superstar!

Shannaye Green.

Again, Shannaye demonstrated a fantastic ‘can do’ attitude during PGL, which gave her a determination to succeed during the more difficult activities. The adults were really impressed with Shannaye, as we saw her come out of her shell and completely embrace the whole experience. Well done Shannaye – you should be proud of your achievements.


You are superstars!

To Mr Lawrence and all of their teachers over the years that have made my children's life at Arnold Mill an such enjoyable experience . I know you all will be sorely missed. I'll look forward to hopefully seeing you all again soon once my son Jenson is accepted at Arnold Mill.


Mr L - thank you for the kind message.  They are all lovely children and will be greatly missed. We wish them every success for their futures. Their new schools are lucky to have them!

Mrs Moodie has submitted a message via the 'Guest Book Comments' form. 

 On behalf of Yr6, I just wanted to say a big thank you to all staff for  your support during SATs-with special thanks to Mrs Knight for the amazing breakfasts!
Year 6, it has been a privilege to be with you this week. You have worked (and played) so hard. Your determination shone: I hope that you get the results that you truly deserve. In our afternoons of baking, art, PE and animations it was wonderful to see (and taste) your many, and considerable, talents!

Ellie C has submitted a message via the 'Guest Book Comments' form.

I can't wait until Monday for 3 things. 1. because I get to have my French trumpet lesson. 2. I get to see my friends and Mr Harrison and Miss Spencer. 3. because I get to do spelling I love them because I always get full marks. I love school it is amazing.

I think everyone who went to PGL should be very proud of themselves! During your time there we saw you; be supportive to your friends, overcome your fears, challlenge yourselves and be confident as individuals. Well done everyone, I had a great time there too (a special well done to you if you were in the 'best' group - AKA Mrs Bullen's and Miss Najuk's) :)
