On Thursday 19th May, the Year 3, 4 and 5 Councillors attended the mayor-making ceremony at St. Nicholas' Church. During the ceremony we sung hymns and said prayers. We ended by singing the National Anthem. We then went down the road to the Guildhall where the Mayor threw kitchels at us, out of the window. We tried to catch as many as we could. One Councillor managed to collect 10 kitchels, while others just got hit in the face by them. It was a great experience.
On Friday 13th May, Bernard Jenkin visited our school. Bernard was given a tour of the school by Isabella, Maisy and Mr Kempster, who then gave him a brief tour of the school. After the tour, Bernard gave an assembly to the whole school and told us about his job as an MP and about the history of Parliament. We also got to ask him questions.

On Wednesday the 2nd of March, School Council visited the Houses of Parliament. The trip was amazing and all of the Councillors agreed that they learned something new. We got to see where the Prime Minister David Cameron lives and some of the Councillors were lucky enough to stand on the spot where King Charles I and Guy Fawkes were put on trial. We also all got to watch a real life debate in the House of Commons. We finished with a reenactment of when the Suffragettes chained themselves to the railings in Parliament and learnt how they won the vote for women.
