Pupils from Littleport Community Primary School visited the seat of democracy this week, during a school trip to the Houses of Parliament.

The children, all elected as school councillors by their class mates, spent Monday morning on a tour of Parliament and Westminster Hall.

The tour, organised by teachers, included time spent in the House of Commons and the House of Lords, as well as the 900-year-old Westminster Hall which was built by William II in 1097.

The official Parliamentary tour guide said he was impressed by the children’s knowledge and that they asked more questions than some sixth-formers.

Inclusion coordinator Steve Newton said: “The children had a wonderful time, and were a credit to the school. Several of them gave answers to questions that I wasn’t so sure of myself!”
