Rose Hill School Year 6 French residential
On Friday 25 May, twenty-seven excited Year 6 children accompanied by: Mr Draper, Mr Long, Mr Hinchliffe, Mrs Makinson, Mrs Warran-Smith and Mrs Morgan arrived at school for a 07.15 departure to St Omer, France.
A Heavy sea-mist covered us as we undertook the crossing to Calais, but we were pleased to see a warm and welcoming sun emerge to greet us as we progressed inland. We then enjoyed a picnic outside the first of our scheduled visits: La Coupole (a Nazi V1 & V2 Rocket launching bunker buried deep into a hill near St Omer).
As always, the emphasis of the trip was on cultural exchange, language experience, history and social interaction. A special highlight, this year, was travelling into Belgium and visiting Flanders’ battle fields. Chocolate shopping and an evening meal dwindled into history as we arrived at the Menin Gate to witness an emotional Last Post Ceremony. Ella Rose and Will made us all very proud as, in full school uniform, they laid a wreath on behalf of Rose Hill.
The four-day trip was a great success and comprised a packed itinerary including: café visit, market, Passchendaele museum and trenches, Tyne Cot military cemetery, a day-trip to Bellewaerde theme park, chateau activities and a beach picnic

Many of us have heard tales of children who swipe left on the cover of a book, before they think to turn the page. Modern mythology aside, the advancement of technology in homes has certainly impacted pupils’ expectations of how they should absorb and communicate information at school.
