Year 6 - Trip to the House of Parliament


As part of their British Values learning, Year 6 travelled to the Houses of Parliament and took part in a workshop titled ‘Journey to Democracy’. Initially, they were given a guided tour of the Palace of Westminster, whilst exploring how Britain went from being an absolute monarchy to a modern-day democracy. This was followed by a workshop where the children were given the opportunity to investigate historical artifacts and clues, whilst focusing on the role of the two houses: the House of Commons and the House of Lords. This lead onto a final discussion about who has the power to make laws in Britain and how laws have changed over time.
