Y7 Team Building Day @BewlWater
On Thursday 15th September Year 7 went to Bewl Water. When we are there we did team building exercises. We were put into two teams decided by the Bewl Water staff. There were lots of different tasks, one was when you had to carry someone through a small rope hole in a rope spider’s web. I went through the highest hole and my team dropped me! We also did other exercises for example the Tarzan swing where you had to swing from one platform to the other. After lunch we went raft building and my team made an inventive star shaped raft, which was not very streamlined and did not move very much in the water. Our whole team fell into the water including Mr Mansfield. The other team made a normal raft which did work. It was a really good school trip and I would love to do it again.
Last Thursday we had an amazing trip to Bewl Water, we completed lots of fun activities to help us get to know each other better.
The raft building and races did not start well for my team because the raft ended up going round and round in circles. When the other team almost reached the shore again, we hadn’t even reached the half way bouy so a life boat came and towed us.
We started the day with some very enjoyable land activities, including a rope swing, the chasm pit and many more enjoyable activities. In the afternoon we proceeded to the water part of our fabulous day. After building rafts we raced them. The other team got a bit stuck so as we finished we went into the lake for a little splash. It was a fun and fantastic school trip.
As a new boy I was feeling nervous as well as excited. I enjoyed the whole day but I especially liked the raft building in the afternoon. I really enjoyed being with my new friends, it was a great start to my time at Rose Hill.
The Tarzan swing proved to be both scary and thrilling. Swinging from island to island in fits of laughter. We all loved the raft building, we all managed to stay dry until Mr Long’s rope slipped off his barrel.
One thing I learned at Bewl, besides that the water is colder than you think, is how to tie knots such as the reef knot and how to tie a barrel to a wooden pole. I also learned balancing skills as we thought of strategies to cross a bottomless pit. I enjoyed racing the rafts and improved on my rowing skills.

Year 6 Geography trip to the River Cuckmere and Seven Sisters Country Park.
12 March 2020
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.
