Year 6 go to Parliament in London

On Monday 4th February, Year 6 visited Parliament where they experienced a tour around the wonderful building and got to go into the House of Commons and Lords. What an experience for the children to stand in the great hall where Guy Fawkes was put on trial for treason and where Charles I’s fate was decided. Year 6 took part in several activities in the education centre and even got to meet the local MP, Clive Lewis, who led a question and answer session with the children. After lunch, they explored Westminister Abbey where they saw: the Coronation Chair, the tombs of Henry VII, Elizabeth I and Edward the Confessor among others; Poet’s Corner and The Unknown Soldier’s Grave. What a busy and truly amazing day they had – well done Year 6, you were a credit to your school.
