We were delighted to welcome Antoinette Sandbach MP for Eddisbury into school yesterday afternoon to support our understanding of 'Parliament' during Parliament Week.

Each class prepared questions for Antoinette ranging from 'What is it like to be an MP?' to 'Why are the seats green in the House of Commons?'. Antoinette was posed questions from School Council including 'Why has the government put a cap on the number of refugees the country can take and how does this support the rights of a child and the United Nations Convention for Human Rights?' and 'What have you done that you are most proud of as an MP?'

The children were given a very real insight into the role of an MP and what it is like to work in Parliament including: how an MP is elected; how bills of law are passed; how MPs can work within committees; how MPs challenge through their questioning when they sit on the back benches as well as how they have to vote very late at night and telling the children about the falcon that is used to get rid of the pigeons!

Antoinette also talked about her role in the constituency. She lives locally and works in London from Monday to Thursday. She spends Friday and the weekends meeting people in the constituency and attending lots of different types of events. When she meets people who need help and can't an answer, she tries to help them.

It was a fascinating and informative afternoon for the children and staff and we thank Antoinette Sandbach for joining us. Thank you, too, to Mr Taylor (governor) for joining us for the afternoon and organising the visit.

We then talked and learnt all about how to be safe on the road- stop, look, listen, think! Later in the morning, our year 6 buddies came to help us write some instructions for how to cross the road. In the afternoon, our buddies taught us how to cross our pretend road and we talked...
