What an exciting week we had last week – in fact we could hardly contain our squeals of excitement to find that we were being visited by our local MP Clive Lewis!!! We had a briefing session before he arrived to think of some questions that we wanted to ask him (so that we didn’t waste the precious time we had with him.) We weren’t really sure what an MP did so we were keen to find out. When Mr Lewis arrived he had a tour of the school and then came to chat to us (the wait was almost unbearable!) He wanted to know about us and our radio station and then we got to ask him lots of questions like:
Why did you want to join Labour?
Where is your work and what is it called?
What does the Labour Party actually do? (how is it different from the other parties)
What do you do in your job?
Why do you think the Labour Party is fair?
Why is there a Labour Party?
Do you think it’s good that women have the vote now? (as they didn’t a long time ago)
What time does your job start?
Why can’t children vote?
We now know a lot more about what it’s like to be a politician and hopefully Mr Lewis knows a lot more about us too 🙂
Mr Lewis also wrote about us too!
“What a pleasure it was for me to spend time at the Recreation Road Infant School recently. This Norfolk County Council school is Ofsted rated as ‘outstanding’ and I can see why.
Miss Serena Dixon and Mr Michael Bunting, the job share head teachers, gave me an excellent and informative tour of the school, where I spent some time with one group of Year 2 pupils. These were preparing the weekly radio programme which goes out online. I was subjected to an intensive Q&A session: …Why did I want to join Labour? Where did I work? What do I do in my job? Why is there a Labour Party? Why can’t children vote? It was easy to forget how very young they were, attentively listening to my answers.”
Thank you Mr Lewis 🙂
