On Monday 18th April we went to visit the Houses of Parliament to learn about what happens there and get ideas for our own school council. We had a tour round and saw such amazing sights. We saw the House of Commons and the House of Lords and learnt how laws in our country are passed. We saw the Queen’s robing room where she gets ready when she visits there. We even saw a gold throne, which is worth £22 million!
It was such an interesting day. Ms. Wiltshire has decided she would like to be an MP too! After our tour we had a chance to ask our local MP (Gareth Johnson) lots of questions. We grilled him on many issues including, why our school is a polling station, the lack of primary school places in Dartford, lack of doctors, too many new houses, Fairfield pool, immigration, the NHS, events in Dartford and many other topics.
We definitely got our voice heard!
