This week, the children have been taking part in parliament week and learning about how our country is governed. Each class has taken part in different activities with many of the classes taking part in class debates; just like MPs in the House of Commons! This has tied in with our new Tuesday lunchtime debate club which has proved very popular with the children. Year 6 completed research on parliament and were very interested to find out that there is a ‘Official Monster Raving Loony Party’ which people can vote for! Learning about parliament is important for children as they learn how they might instigate change in the future. Who knows; we may have a future prime minister at Sacred Heart!
