Year 6 & 7 French Residential Trip

The end of last half term saw the Year 6 and 7 pupils travel to Rue in France for the annual French residential trip.

After an early start and a smooth ferry crossing, we travelled to Éperlecques, a WW2 bunker that was created by the Germans to launch missiles towards Britain. Luckily, the French resistance discovered the bunker, the British were alerted and travesty was avoided. Arriving at the Chateau, the pupils settled into their rooms before being treated to traditional french cuisine for dinner. The day ended with a "Garden Olympics" filled with smiles and laughter.

Saturday was a jam-packed day. In the morning, the pupils used both their French and bartering skills in the market of Rue and had a tour of significant monuments within the village such as the church, chapel and war memorial. After lunch, the groups split into their activity groups and took park in Kayaking and abseiling.

Sunday saw us travel to Bellwearde theme park in Belgium. The long journey was well worth it, as the pupils thoroughly enjoyed being thrown hundreds of feet into the air, spun upside down, twisted back and forth and soaked to the bone.

After three action-filled days, we were all ready to see our families but there was still time to visit a bakery and stop off for some last minute retail therapy in Calais.

We are extremely proud of all the pupils. You were a credit to Rose Hill School.

Does technology hinder children's writing skills?

15 May 2019

Many of us have heard tales of children who swipe left on the cover of a book, before they think to turn the page. Modern mythology aside, the advancement of technology in homes has certainly impacted pupils’ expectations of how they should absorb and communicate information at school.
