School Life

Wembley Trip

To celebrate the end of our essential life skill programme, the children were rewarded for their commitment to the 2 term project with a visit to Wembley Stadium. The children developed further essential life skills by travelling on the tube! It was a brilliant trip in which the children were a credit to the school in terms of their conduct and behaviour.

Here’s what the children said about the day:

“I really enjoyed taking a picture with the FA cup.” Catalina L

“When we went in to the stadium, I was overwhelmed by the size of the pitch!” Savannah F


Colchester Zoo

Year 3 and 4 visited Colchester Zoo on Wednesday and had a fantastic time. The children’s behaviour was exemplary. Here are some quotes about the day from the children:

“I really enjoyed the different boxes around the zoo where you had to try and guess the different smells. Some of them were very stinky!” Fynn G

“I liked seeing the animals because some had babies and they were really cute!” Ava W

“The thing I liked most was seeing all the animals and finding out how endangered they were.” Ella-May S

“I liked feeding the elephants because when it took the food out of your hand, it felt really weird and rough and it was funny.” Robson S



Undefeated at the Copleston rounders tournament, unfortunately the tournament got stopped early due to bad weather. Great effort by all those involved, well done guys.



Finished 2nd place at the Copleston cricket tournament. Narrowly missing out on first place.


Olympic Athlete

Rose Hill were lucky enough to be visited by GB athlete Laura Samuel. Laura was a silver medal winner in the Triple Jump at the Commonwealth Games 2014. She completed a fitness circuit with every class in the school and then gave an inspirational assembly. It was a fantastic morning and all the children had a great time.


Maths Competition

Year 5 Maths team competed against 7 other primary schools at Woolverstone Hall. The team were crowned champions! An amazing effort! Well done all!


 A Judo Masterclass

During March Rose Hill were lucky enough to have a visit from an ex British athlete and judo specialist Laurence Kenyon. Laurence took each class for a slot, teaching the pupils the basics of Judo. They got to try various falls, throws and holds.

The children had a great time and were then offered the opportunity to go down to Ipswich judo club for a free session to see if they wanted to join the club on a more permanent basis. All the pupils had a great day. Well done.


A Christmas Carol

A theatre company came in and gave years 5 and 6 a hilarious version of Charles Dicken's A Christmas Carol.

 Cross Country

We took 32 pupils from years 3-6 along to the cross country event at Copleston this term. The children all did really well and worked really hard. All of our teams finished in the top 5 places in all age categories. There were also some fantastic individual performances:
Lily-Anna Williams (Y4) - 8th place
Shalom Kamanga (Y6) - 9th place
Megan Tyrell (Y6) - 10th place
Bradley Allen (Y6) - 8th place
Great work everyone.


The girls have had a great start to the netball season this year. They have played 4 matches and won 3 of them. Despite some difficult weather conditions they have played some superb netball. They have shown resilience, and a fantastic 'can do' attitude. They have been great ambassadors for Rose Hill. Looking forward to more of the same in the new year. Well done girls!


The Mayor's Visit

The Mayor of Ipswich came to visit Rose Hill and the children challenged her with some outstanding questions.




Rose Hill boys did a fantastic job at the IPSSA  boys 7-a-side football tournament. They finished top of their group so qualified for the semi finals. They fought well, narrowly missing out on a place in the final with the semi final finishing Springfield 1 Rose Hill 0. Well done boys!!!


PE Award Winners

Last year the PE award was awarded to Molly Moore and Illyian Uzunov for outstanding effort and attitude in PE and Sport. Well done.
