Reception talked about the importance of having a school council and elected two new members to join Finchale School Council.
Come back here to see what Year 1 got up to during UK Parliament Week.
Come back here to see what Year 2 got up to during UK Parliament Week.
Year 3 thought about what they would like to change if they became a Member of Parliament.
Year 4 carried out a virtual tour of the House of Lords and House of Commons and compared and contrasted these. They then wrote a diary entry about their "trip" to Parliament and described what they could see and how they felt about the experience.
Year 5 watched video clips from the website https://learning.parliament.uk/en/resources/what-is-the-house-of-commons-video/ to help them find out information about the House of Commons and the House of Lords. They explored the history, role, work and membership of the Commons and how it holds the government to account. They have a better understanding of how Parliament checks and challenges what the government does. Year 5 discussed the current Prime Minister and they can name some of the political parties.
Year 6 carried out a virtual tour of the House of Lords and the House of Commons and compared and contrasted them. They then discussed the different political parties and explored how MPs are chosen. They finished this off with a UK Parliament Week quiz.
A big thank you to last years School Council!
