Pupils visit Houses of Parliament

Thursday 12 January 2017

Our Year 4 pupils were fortunate enough to visit the Houses of Parliament as part of their curriculum. The children had the opportunity of viewing the inside of Westminster Palace as well as seeing the House of Commons in action.  

As part of their visit the pupils were able to participate in a voting workshop which demonstrated the British Value of Democracy. The pupils were divided into ‘political parties’ and they were able to present the parties manifesto to the group.  Following these there was a mini ballot election!  The winners even got to form their own ‘House of Commons’.

The day was enjoyed by all and we’re sure that our pupils will be the future of the real House of Parliament!
