Rose Hill School Focus Day
Our first Focus Day of the year was a great success! Prep School pupils were immersed in learning for a day about a particular topic , acquiring and applying knowledge. The four Key Strands of Enterprise, Adventure, Enquiry and Philanthropy were woven into every child’s experience through outdoor learning, risk taking, creativity, investigation, collaboration, curiosity, presentation, global awareness and communication to name a few!
- Year 3 – English – woodland poetry day
- Year 4 - Religious Studies, focus on Diwali - cookery, dancing, art and drama using wooden masks
- Year 5 – Art and DT, focus on charcoal - the history of charcoal, making charcoal burners, using charcoal in drawing and bark rubbing

Pupils at Rose Hill School gathered together last Friday to bury a time capsule marking the end of what has been an extraordinary year. The capsule included items from all pupils reflecting on both the positive and negative experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown. The time capsule was part of Wellness Week, an annual event in the school calendar.

Science Week caused a flap of ‘eggcitement’ across Rose Hill School last week where the whole school looked at life cycles. The children welcomed two sets of chick eggs into the school and children enjoyed witnessing the miraculous journey from lifeless egg to cheeky chick.

On Wednesday 11 March the Reception children went on a visit to the nature trail at Coolings Garden Centre in Knockholt. There was great excitement, even before we boarded the minibus in our salopettes, coats and wellies.

Whilst the heavy rain did make the trip via Alfriston village a little tricky it also served to highlight the spectacular meanders and creeks of the River Cuckmere’s floodplain in the Spring sunshine and allow the ‘New Cut’ to be in full spate and speed along to the sea at low tide. As it did so the fast-flowing water actively undercut and eroded the shingle beach causing mini land or ‘shingle’ slides before our very eyes.
