Year 5 and 6 visited the Houses of Parliament (also known as The Palace of Westminster). We discovered that there are two sections to the houses of parliament; the House of Lords and the House of Commons. The House of Lords is decorated in red and the House of Commons in green. We learnt about the different art galleries, for example the Royal Gallery and the Prince Gallery.
We also learnt about the ‘Suffragettes’ a group of women (and some men) who believed women should be able to vote. At the end of the visit we met and talked with Neil Coyle (our MP) and some of the year 6’s got his autograph!

All the pupils at Albion enjoyed taking part in the Big Lunch. School council organised a celebratory lunch for the end of term. Pupils came dressed in their class colours and enjoyed eating their lunch in the playground with colourful cups and napkins. Thank you to school council, pupils hope you will organise it again for next year!!
One of Albion’s Dance clubs performed at an event in ‘The Scoop’ near City Hall. Children from across the borough performed a Rugby World Cup themed dance. Albion chose Uruguay! The children enjoyed the process of creating, learning and performing a dance immensely. We waited patiently while the results were being given.
Albion came second with their dance! First with their team flag! First for best male dancer! What a talented bunch!!
