Year 5 went on the train to London to visit the Houses of Parliament. We had a wonderful time comparing the House of Lords and the House of Commons and even visiting the visitors’ gallery in both. With preparations well underway for the upcoming General Election it was an exciting time to visit the home of our government and I am sure that it is a trip that the children will remember for a long tome to come. They certainly had the opportunity to see inside the workings of government and learn a little more about how democracy works (as well as to travel by train with their friends!).
