Dear Parents/ Carers,
For the last few years, we have taken advantage of the lovely summer weather and organised a beach week for the pupils - which they thoroughly enjoy. This year will be no exception as we will be having our annual beach week but with a twist…it will be Caribbean themed.
As this year marks the 75th anniversary of the Windrush, we will be embracing some of the Caribbean traditions. The Windrush was the name of the ship that many Caribbean people travelled on when migrating to England after the war – this is a significant period in history for many of our pupils and staff and we would like to acknowledge this in true Rosehill style with lots of fun.
Over the next few weeks classes will begin to learn about some of the Caribbean countries and their traditions through the exploration of music, stories, food and dance as well as preparing costumes for our whole school carnival taking place on Tuesday 25th July 2023. Classes will experience some of the traditional elements of the Caribbean carnival whilst taking part in a parade around the school. To help bring this exciting event to life we ask that you please send your child to school dressed in bright colours, carnival costumes or clothing to represent a country. On the day we will be offering pupils the chance to have their face painted: if you would like your child to do this, please click here to give consent.
Please contact your child’s teacher if you feel you can support us with this event in anyway.
