  • Question Time Event - Parliament Week 2017

    On Friday 17th November, the final day of our Parliament Week celebrations, children in Year 6, alongside other Year 6 pupils from across the STAR Alliance, took part in an exciting Question Time Event in which they posed a series of questions to a panel of important political figures. Panellists included:

    - Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate, a serving member of the House of Lords;

    - Nigel Adams, MP for Selby and Ainsty;

    - Richard Corbett, MEP for Yorkshire and Humber;

    - Julia Mulligan, North Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner;

    - David Buckle, Vice-Chairman of Selby District Council. 

     

    Prior to the event, children worked hard, both inside and outside of school, to create a series of questions aimed to challenge the panellists and encourage a wide range of views and responses. They definitely succeeded! Questions covered a wide topics such as Brexit, Donald Trump, terrorism, anti-social behaviour, crime in Sherburn andsurrounding areas, funding for Youth Services and homelessness. 

    Over the course of the event, children listed attentively to the often passionate and animated responses from the panellists; they were a true credit to our school. At the end of the event, children had the opportunity to meet the panellists and have their photos taken with our VIP guests.

    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.
