Welcome to Athelstan Community Primary School

As part of Parliament Week, we were fortunate enough to have an interview with the Speaker in the House of Commons. We asked him questions as a school about his job and role within Parliament.

As part of the week’s events, Year 3 held our own debate where we talked about interesting issues. Such issues discussed included whether we should wear school uniform and if there should be homework. We thought about if we were for or against the issue and then gave reasons as to why we held this point of view. To give our ideas, we had to stand and then the Speaker chose one person to speak at a time. The opposing side then gave their ideas. At the end of the debate it was decided which side gave the most convincing arguement towards the issue.
