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

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.
