Year 4 visit the British Museum
Last week Year 4 travelled by coach to the British Museum. We visited Room 4 first to see the Rosetta Stone and spent 30 minutes investigating the exhibits. We then attended a 40 minute talk in the Clore Education Centre where our pupils were keen to answer questions on Ancient Egypt. On our way to the Egyptian galleries on the first floor of the Museum we walked through the Anglo-Saxon and Roman galleries – 2 topics studied when the pupils were in Year 3.
The Egyptian galleries on the top floor contained many examples of mummies brought back from Egypt. The favourite of many pupils were the mummified animals-especially the cats!

Pupils at Rose Hill School gathered together last Friday to bury a time capsule marking the end of what has been an extraordinary year. The capsule included items from all pupils reflecting on both the positive and negative experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown. The time capsule was part of Wellness Week, an annual event in the school calendar.

Science Week caused a flap of ‘eggcitement’ across Rose Hill School last week where the whole school looked at life cycles. The children welcomed two sets of chick eggs into the school and children enjoyed witnessing the miraculous journey from lifeless egg to cheeky chick.

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.
