Just like that our first half term has flown by! Since September we have seen some fantastic learning, heard some fabulous singing and been spooked by some frightful halloween costumes! We have also had some new pupils join us at Rosehill since September and we would like again to wish you all a very warm welcome. After all our pupils' hard work we hope they and yourselves have enjoyed the half term break and that our pupils come back ready to take on the second half of this term as we have lots to look forward to.
Please see the below details of both recent and upcoming activities taking place in school…
Last week our children had their photographs taken and you will have hopefully received a copy of the sample photo along with the order form. For anyone wishing to order a school photo please bring your order form back to school by Wednesday 2nd November with payment included.

We have a local guitarist from Rotherham Music delivering guitar lessons in school during the school day. There will be 6 lessons that will run throughout November and December which will cost £27.50 per pupil wanting to attend. The guitars will be provided in school. If your child would like to attend and you haven’t yet signed up please click here to complete the form.
During November our Y4, Y5 and Y6 residential trips will be taking place, making November a busy and exciting month! If any parent has any questions regarding the trips then please speak with your child’s class teacher who will be happy to help. To remind yourselves of the trip details and what is needed on the kit list then please see the information posted on our school website here. For the children who are not attending the residential trips, they are still expected to come to school as normal, class teachers will be in touch nearer the time to let you know what they have planned for the children that will be staying in school.
