Two teams from Rose Hill School (RHS) joined 89 teams from different UK schools to make up the Biggest Gathering of Goblins in the world so far. The teams came all the way from Cornwall-Norwich.

It was an early start, from 8:00am for scrutineering when the officials check the cars for safety and no moderations, so teams can’t cheat.
About 9:00am saw the team having a team briefing. It is where the team of all the racers, are told about the race. Drive well, avoid crashing as much as you can and don’t stop during an event unless there is a mechanical problem.

About 9:30 the first race of the day for the Red Devils began. It was the slalom. The course was very easy and lots of fun.

Next was the sprint. It was a short course, round a bend and stop in the garage. It was hard stopping in the garage because you gained good speed going down the hill.
The Drag race was next. This is just a straight line down a narrow bit of concrete divided into thirds. It was hard to win because you have two cars the same or better standard than you, but it was fun to race.

Lunch came next and it was a well-deserved break. Also the people for the Lap of Champions were chosen.

The “Lap of Champions” came next at about 3:00pm and all the cars raced together, starting in lanes of 5. The 2 mile lap took about 10 minutes to complete. Our cars performed well, one car from another team broke down.

Our brilliant CHEERLEADERS (Old Rose Hillians) did us proud. They made special T-shirts and had great dance routines with pompoms, to support RHS.
We won the best presented team award! The officials liked our team work, cars and, most importantly, our CHEERLEADERS!

It was a great day and I really enjoyed it. It was a surprise to win an award, of which we are all really proud of. I would like to encourage other children, at RHS, to join our fantastic Green Goblin club to keep it going, because it is so much fun!

IMG_4748On Tuesday 1er Juillet it was French day at Rose Hill there were lots of things going on at break time like Year 6 being waiters, some of the scholars did portraits of people that wanted them, there also was Ollie,Alban and Charlie being mime artists and some year 6 girls did some AMAZING dancing – all in one break time! We had a absolutely AWESOME lunch. The whole of year three did a competition where you had to design a version of the menu and Ruby came first, Lily came second and Emily came third and there were lots of runners up. In the morning we had a great assembly where we saw lots of pictures and videos about the Year 4 Boulougne trip and the Year 6 and 7 residential trip. Everyone had a GREAT day.
