Learning about democracy
Mrs Lund has returned from the Houses of Parliament.
There were 66 teachers on the course
Below is the first follow up session Year 6 had about the course.
Some of their questions had been answered.
Have you ever got lost in the Houses of Parliament?
What made you want to become an MP?
What is the most exciting thing about Parliament?
Is it hard to be an MP?
What is the actual role of the Prime Minister?
How many times are laws checked before they are made?
How could we get rid of the House of Lords if we thought it was a good idea to do so?
We strive to ensure that our children are well prepared for the world outside. We aspire for them to be tolerant, respectful of other cultures and faiths, be law abiding citizens and have a real life handle on our democratic system and understand how they can influence that for the good of themselves and others.
Whilst we have an ongoing whole school plan to ensure that we teach British Values and "Britishness" across each year group, we also ensure that we respond to current social and political events in the life of our country and across the world.
