MP Visit

Last half term as part of local geography we wrote a letter to our local MP for Rossendale and Darwen, Sir Jake Berry about the state of our local bingo ball on Burnley Road to share our thoughts and opinions. Little did we think we'd get a visit in person to discuss the issue! As well as talking about the building - it looks like it's getting knocked down and some new units built in its place - we discussed other local issues, like the fountain in the middle of town, local parks, and of course that favourite, potholes on the roads! We also found out how our Parliament works, what an MP is and does and how new laws are made, including a few mini-debates where Year 3 became Parliament on the important issues of serving hot chocolate in schools and whether Rossendale should be a no-fly zone!
