Rose Hill School art trip to Eastbourne College
Year 7 went to Eastbourne for an Art trip last week. It was a fun filled day out with plenty of things to do.
When we arrived our first port of call was the lunch hall where we enjoyed Eastbourne College’s lovely lunch. The best of the lunch was the hot chocolate machine. (Sam got rather carried away with it). After lunch we went to the Towner Art Gallery where the main focus of the exhibition was ‘Repetition’. There were two rooms, in one the main subject was circles, in the other, the main subject was further repetition of themes.
Next we went to the art department for a ceramics workshop. We made two halves of a huge pot which when put together created a beautiful vase. The theme for the vases was ‘British Values’. We were spilt into two groups; each group decorated their half of the vase the way they wanted. The artwork of the first group (Sam, Abi, Rufus) had the Queens guard as their centrepiece. The main focus of the art work by the second group was Big Ben and the British flag.
At the end of a fantastic workshop we had a snack and reflected on a super day.

Hidden beneath the 1960s bungalows winding through Tunbridge Wells’ “Lake District” and still faintly visible in the day to day life of nearby Rose Hill School are the remains of an old sports club which once attracted well-heeled local residents in droves.

As part of Year 2’s topic ‘Turrets and Tiaras’ we visited Tonbridge Castle last week. It was a Motte and Bailey castle which has had a stone castle built on it since the 11th century. We explored the stone keep and learnt all about the features of a castle such as murder holes, the portcullis, arrow slits, and the Great Hall. We played some old castle games and climbed up the motte to keep a look out for any enemies! It was a fantastic trip, enjoyed by all.

Students from Years 7 & 8 took part in Bede’s School Galactic Challenge Day on Saturday 20 January. This is the third time the competition has been held and our participating students were excited about the brief they had received just 24 hours previously: they would be building a subterranean Martian research base in the year 2060. Our students were put into a company called Solaris along with students from three other schools. In total there were four competing companies totally just over one hundred year 7 & 8 students. After a welcome speech from the Deputy Head of Bede’s the students were whisked off by Sixth Formers who were to act as their CEO for Solaris. The accompanying staff were told clearly that we were not to help in any way – the students were on their own!
