Local MP Visits Our School

Today we had a visit from our MP John Healy. The children have been learning about democracy and British Values. We thought about our school council and how we voted for them to represent our classes at meetings. John explained this is a bit like how his constituency voted for him to be a Member of Parliament.

We asked questions to John about his career. This is part of our work on school pledges where we have different visitors in to explain about their jobs. John said his child came to our school when he was little and was amazed at how grown up and responsible our Ashwood children are.
