Houses of Parliament Visit

On Monday 10th February, a very excited group of children (and adults!) visited the Houses of Parliament. In year six we have been learning about the history of Parliament, how women got the vote and the role of Parliament today, and this visit was a fantastic opportunity to bring that learning to life.

We were lucky enough to have a tour of the Queen’s robing room, her chamber and the Houses of Lords and Commons. We even stood in the same spot as Barack Obama and Nelson Mandela have in the historic Westminster Hall.

The children were amazing and did us proud by answering questions and showing lots of interest and enthusiasm.

A great day was had by all!
