Welcome to Athelstan Community Primary School

skype the speaker

On Monday 13th November, as part of our events around Parliament Week, children from Years 2 to 6 conducted a Skype interview with Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow. This was an exciting opportunity for the children to learn about Parliament, Democracy and the role of Speaker of the House and is something that very few primary schools are given the opportunity to do.

Mr Speaker spoke passsionately about a range of topics covering Brexit, Theresa May, Donald Trump and the importance of children involving themselves in politics. He also commented on the quality of questions are children asked, all of which had been devised by the children themselves.
