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

It’s been a busy week full of book related fun. To kick off Book Week The Library hosted a Book Hunt for the Prep School on Monday which saw the children hunting high and low for a selection of titles. On Tuesday it was Pre Prep’s turn as they took to the Astro to hunt for favourite book characters—I’m glad to say the glum weather did not dampen their high spirits! Prep School have been designing bookmarks during their library sessions with some fantastic designs created by our artistic pupils.
