School Council London Visit

18 May

Our Year 3-6 school councillors went on a very special trip to London this week. Our school councillors were also joined by school councillors from Turves Green Primary (one of our other schools in our MAT). On this 'adventure', we got to experience the Tube in rush hour and we had special guided tours of Westminster Abbey, where our King’s coronation took place, and the Houses of Parliament. Whilst we were at the Houses of Parliament we had a special lesson about how laws are made. We also had the opportunity to watch the representatives in the House of Lords and the House of Commons debating.

On this visit we saw many other London landmarks too including Horse Guards Parade, Buckingham Palace, the Cenotaph, Nelson’s Column and the Millennium Eye. We even got special permission to visit the front of Downing Street. It was a very long day, but our children were perfect ambassadors for our school.
