Our Visit to the Pupil Parliament

pp7pp3(1)pp2

Year Five and Six pupils from Dovecote School Council recently joined school councils from other city primary schools to take part in the annual Nottingham Primary Parliament. The children got the opportunity to discuss issues which effect their local communities and had to think about ways they could solve or improve some of these.

The pupils from Dovecote worked with School Council members from Fernwood Junior School in Wollaton and decided they would design posters and bookmarks which showed important phone numbers such as Child line and the local PSCO.

The pupils had to then present their idea to the rest of the Primary Parliament and the Lord Mayor of Nottingham- she loved our idea! Look at for the posters and bookmarks early next term
