Class Teacher – Miss Abbigail Dean
Teaching Assistant – Mrs Wendy Lewis, Mrs Mandy Cole and Miss Caitlin Townsend
Palacio class have made a fantastic start to the year! They have come back eager to learn and have settled in brilliantly. I am really looking forward to our year ahead and will share our learning on this page.
Our First Two Weeks
During our first two weeks, Palacio class have been reading ‘The Promise’ by Nicola Davies. We have been thinking about the impact that we have on our environment. We took a walk around the village and churchyard, taking in the surroundings and the children also took part in some litter picking.
Term 1 and 2 Curious Curriculum
Term 1 and 2’s curriculum focus is going to be WWII, focusing on the enquiry question ‘What was it like to live during World War II?’
Year 5 and 6 will be kickstarting their new curriculum topic with a WOW day on Monday 20th September. The children will be taking part in some wartime artwork, cooking and then finishing their WWII experience by watching ‘Good Night Mr Tom’. The children and Year 5/6 staff team are going to come dressed up in 1940’s or wartime clothing. Check back next week for some photos!
The children are going to be reading ‘Good Night Mr Tom’ by Michelle Magorian and ‘Rose Blanche’ by Roberto Innocenti and Ian McEwan.
Please see the knowledge organiser for more information of what our learning with entail.

WWII WOW Day
Year 5 and 6 had a fantastic day immersing themselves in the WWII experience. They came to school dressed in 1940’s wartime clothing and we must say they looked brilliant! The children did some WWII artwork, made 3D spitfires and tried their hand at some wartime cooking using rationed ingredients. They baked potato and carrot scones. Finally, the children watched Good Night Mr Tom, which is our new class book. They then sampled their baking during a short film interval. We hope this day has got the children excited for the next two terms of learning!
