Liz Twist Visits Year 5

5th July 2019

Our Y5 pupils were given the opportunity to meet with Liz Twist, the local Member of Parliament. The meeting with Liz gave the pupils a chance to discuss their recent visit to the Houses of Parliament, a visit they thoroughly enjoyed. Throughout the morning, they were able to learn about the role of an MP as Liz explained in detail the work that she does, which the children found extremely interesting. They also discovered that it is a very demanding job, as Liz has to travel to London on a weekly basis, often in Parliamentary debates until late in the evening. Liz answered a number of the children’s questions that were posed to her, and I must congratulate them all on the level of questions that they asked.
