Downing Street and the Houses of Parliament

Some of our Key Stage 2 pupils visited these famous locations that are central to our British democracy.

On Tuesday the 9th June, pupils from Year 5 and 6 were taken on a VIP tour of Parliament. After an early start, we arrived at Westminster for a tour of the main government building of the UK. Although pictures weren’t allowed, we learned so much about it all from our guide, Patrick. We visited the House of Commons, where our elected MPs ask questions and vote for laws, and also the House of Lords, where appointed people revise and approve those laws. We even saw two of the Queen’s thrones – one was covered in gold! The young politicians had so many questions they impressed our guide.
When we left the tour, a man approached us in Westminster Hall. His name was Laurence, and he worked for David Lammy, the MP for Tottenham. He explained that Mr Lammy was in a debate about London’s Air Pollution, and told us about how to get careers in politics. We told him the results of Year Five’s experiments from last term.
Next, we paid our respects with a minute’s silence at the Cenotaph in the middle of Whitehall.
The biggest surprise of all awaited, when Mr Coffey explained that we could go through the gates of Downing Street and approach the most famous door in the country. We took lots of photographs and asked the guide more questions about life on Downing Street. Apparently, David Cameron was at home, and had just finished a meeting with his team but we couldn’t see him.
Then we passed through Horseguards Parade, and finally got to sit down and eat lunch in Green Park. Will we ever forget this day?
