A visit from UK Parliament

Following our drivers of activism and democracy, yesterday we had a virtual visit from the education team at UK Parliament.

Introduction to the House of Commons.

The children looked at the different parts of the building and learnt about some of the history of the Houses of Parliament. Then we looked at how our democracy works in the UK as well as the different components of the Houses of Parliament and how a law is written.

The importance of debate.

We were able to participate using the chat and the children asked lots of great questions and made some excellent suggestions about campaigns that they would raise or the purpose of different laws.
