Trip to the Houses of Parlimament
On Monday 29th April, the learning champions from KS2 visited the Houses of Parliament.
We watched an educational video all about the history of parliament up to present day. After this, we saw the House of Commons and the House of Lords and found out that green and red are the colours for each house.
We learnt about the lords, baroness' and MPs roles in making our laws including how they vote using ay and no.
Within the House of Lords, we found out about the Queen's speech and saw the ornate throne she sits on during the opening of parliament.
During the tour, we saw many statues of former prime ministers as well as Kings and Queens.
The architecture of the building was beautiful with lots of detailed stain glass windows; huge portrait paintings; chandeliers and woodcarvings.
