This morning Ms Papas and Mr Reid took a small group of Year 6 pupils on a tour of the Houses of Parliament. This was following a discussion we had with two Year 6 pupils earlier this year about democracy.
Mr Reid contacted our local MP Malcolm Wicks who arranged this tour for us at relatively short notice.
We were shown all around the Palace of Wesminster and learnt a great deal about how Parliament is organised.
The children who went on the trip will be writing an account on Mr Reid’s blog. We are planning on taking the whole of Year 6 to the Houses of Parliament in December 2011.
If you would like to find out more look at the piece on Mr Reid’s blog down on heavers farm.
