Year 5 were very lucky to experience a virtual tour of parliament in May. They were taken on a tour around the rooms in parliament. Arriving in each room, they learnt what the purpose of the room was and what happened in the room; they were then given the opportunity to ask any questions based on what they had learnt. At the end of the tour, the children were greeted with their local MP, Luke Evans. Mr Evans gave a short description detailing what his job was like and then had a 10 minute Q&A session where the children were able to ask more questions about Mr Evans’ job role and what he had done for the local community. The children were really engaged throughout the whole session and really enjoyed having the opportunity to ask questions about government and parliament.
17th June is Cystic Fibrosis awareness day and as we have a child in Class 2B that lives with this illness, two children are wearing yellow T-shirts to raise awareness of it. They have talked to the class about what it is and the class have asked questions to deepen their understanding of this whilst celebrating our uniqueness.
Amber & Grace (Year 5) volunteered their time to litter pick around their estate where they live.

Great to see the youngsters making a difference !" Well done girls!
