Our visit to the Houses of Parliament

Today, we had the opportunity to visit the Houses of Parliament and learn about the rich British history which has made this country so special. We learned about The Palace of Westminster and how it has been a center of power for over 900 years. We learned a lot about the way the prime minister makes decisions and the role of all the members of the parliament. A member of parliament is the person elected by all those who live in a particular area (constituency) to represent them in the House of Commons. We learned about the start of the suffragettes movement and how we can all make a difference through our votes and ideas. We enjoyed our trip because it inspired us to be active and speak up for what we believe in. We can all make a difference. We can all make history.
