Today some of our School Council went to the Council House to take part in Primary Parliament. The theme for the session was Safe Lives, Positive Neighbourhoods and what makes a SMART City.
Throughout the day the children worked with their partners from Snape Wood Primary School to design and build their own safe, positive community!
This involved thinking about what materials they could use that were eco-friendly, how people would get to the shopping centre as well as how they could reduce the use of plastic bags to help the environment. The children thought about making the building self-sufficient and how reusable energy could make this a possibility.
After they had finished their Shopping Centre, it was time to present their ideas to Councillor David Mellen and the rest of Primary Parliament. Everyone did a fantastic job and managed to answer some tricky questions from the other parliamentarians.
