Y6 Trip to Eltham Palace

On Wednesday 20th October, our Year 6 class visited Eltham Palace. The children had a wonderful day exploring the historic grounds. Please see the quotes from the children below.


‘Eltham Palace is a historical building, childhood home to Henry VIII and survivor of WW2 bombings.’ Shauna.


‘When we first arrived, we were on the North Bridge, which still had fish living under it. Outstandingly, that’s where Henry VIII used to come into the palace.’ Mikael.


‘The Palace, built in the 1300s, was home to many rich people. Many parts were destroyed and it got rebuilt in the style of art deco; this happened in the 1930s before the Second World War.’ Micaiah.


‘The animal decoration on the doors was made from artists’ drawings of animals in London Zoo.’ Kimberley.


‘There was a map room, which was used by soldiers during World War II. Ginnie (the owner) had a pet lemur , who was called Jonggy. He had his own ladder to his room. It had central heating!’ Florence.
