This invasion is from outer space, with lots of stories, poems and plays about weird and wonderful alien happenings. We are really looking forward to our visit to the Space Dome, when our school hall will be transformed into a planetarium for a morning. Last term, we started thinking about our space topic and what we would like to learn about, and we will have plenty of independent research time in school.
Our Trip to Parliament
We had a fantastic time at the Houses of Parliament earlier in January. We met our MP Liam Fox and we asked him lots of tricky questions! We watched a debate in the House of Commons about tax - we didn't really understand what it was about but it was really interesting to see the MPs taking it in turns to stand up and speak. Here are some of our comments about the day:
It was an outstanding day and a chance of a lifetime to see the both houses! Frank
In our group, we played a game and I was Prime Minister, Frank was Chancellor of the Exchequer, Bella was Education Minister, Ciara was Health Minister, Oliver was in charge of Transport and Will was in charge of Defence. Jemima C (They'd get my vote any day - Mrs Hunt)
I learned lots of things about how the government works and I watched a film about Suffragettes. Eleanor
I fell down the stairs in the House of Commons. I'll never forget my day. Jemima R
