Yesterday, Van Gogh class went on a trip to the Houses of Parliament for our Topic unit on Parliament.

We were very lucky to be given a tour of the House of Lords AND the House of Commons! We learned that the elected MPs in the House of Commons make laws, while the members of the House of Lords shape the law by checking and challenging the work of the government.

After the tour, we participated in an exciting workshop that taught us all about politics and how we can have our voices heard by the government.

We then enjoyed a picnic lunch in the sunshine In Victoria Tower Gardens before making our way back to school. Overall it was a fantastic day!
