Trip to London
Students from five primary schools joined together to visit Tate Modern and the Houses of Parliament as part of initiative organised by Severn Academies Educational Trust.
Following a short visit to Tate Modern students followed the Thames path taking in the sights of London before spending over two hours in the Houses of Parliament, observing debates taking place in both the House of Commons and the House of Lords.
During the afternoon, students were joined by not one but indeed two of our local MPs, Mark Garnier and Nigel Huddlestone, as the schools sit in two constituencies: Stourport Primary Academy, Wilden All Saints, St Bartholomew’s and Wolverley Sebright in Wyre Forest and Hartlebury CE Primary in Mid-Worcestershire.
The visit was part of a series of events organised by Severn Academies Educational Trust which included a visit last week from Diane Hedditch, Parliament Outreach Programme, who delivered an assembly and debating sessions in three local schools involving over 200 students in years 5 and 6 in all five primary schools.
