Parliament Week

Year 5 worked on creating their own political party. They discussed issues that concerned them and subsequently created manifestos.

Reception Class explored the word 'respect' during Parliament Week and thought about what it meant to them. The key message they came up with was:




They then wanted to make a Reception Class guide on how to be respectful so that everybody in school can read it and know how to treat each other with respect. All of the children agreed to the rules they created collectively, so as a sign of this, made their own handprints with their names on to display around the guide.  

The class then acted out different scenarios that demonstrated showing respect to others.

Visit from Cllr Rebecca Charlwood


The brilliant Rebecca Charlwood came into school to speak to year 5 and 6 about the job she does as a local councillor. We were all very impressed with how committed she is to making our community a safe and happy place to live. She is a shining example of how to live out or school ethos: "By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another" (John 13:35)

In Year Two we talked about democracy and how though select people are involved in making the final big decisions about the country, everybody could have their say through a local councillor. We thought about the characteristics of a good councillor/representative and then every child voted to elect the persons who fit the bill. We are all confident that our class representatives will do a fantastic job this year!
