Houses of Parliament
On Friday 29th January 2016 our School Council travelled to London to visit the Houses of Parliament. They travelled by train and underground. Children loved walking round Westminster and seeing famous sights like Westminster Abbey and Big Ben.
We had a tour around the Houses of Parliament and children got to sit in the public galleries in the House of Lords and House of Commons to watch debates. Children also met up with a school from Islington called St Andrew’s Primary School and took part in a workshop with them. In the workshop, children learnt about constituencies, manifestos and voting. After some group work, Maddison from Ox Close ended up being voted as Prime Minister!
We had lunch together and made our way back to Kings Cross by tube. The whole trip was a fantastic experience for all of the children and adults!
