Hear!Hear! Parliament visits Barlborough Primary School

At the end of  the Autumn term, a visitor from the Houses of Parliament came into school.

She spoke to the School Council  and  also to all of KS2  during an assembly all about Parliament and how we go about voting for our MP at election times. She also challenged the School Council to think of a local issue and to campaign about it. She discussed who were our local representatives. 

The School Council decided to campaign for a new lollipop person , as without one, they felt that crossing High Street was becoming dangerous. The children  first lobbied Miss Towndrow , only to find she had beaten them to it and a new lollipop person had been appointed!

The Council are now using some of the information provided by our visitor to help them plan an exciting assembly to teach the school about Magna Carta. Watch this space...
