Report from Houses of Parliament by Amyah and Lucas, year 5 St John’s Angell Town

We had a fabulous time visiting the House of Commons and then the House of Lords. It was our first ever visit to Westminster. We found out some really interesting facts, here are a few of them:
The Queen is not allowed to enter the House of Commons (the Green Room).

The Queen’s throne in the House of Lords is actually made out of wood ( but painted with gold paint).

On or around the anniversary of the gun powder plot, the cellars down below the parliament building are checked.

We learnt how and where MPs vote.

It was an excellent day and we enjoyed working with other schools.
