MP for Hornsey and Wood Green
To give students from Coleridge Primary, studying the UK political system, a chance to hear first-hand experience of life in Government, Lynne Featherstone, Home Office Minister and MP for Hornsey and Wood Green on Friday held a special class with years five and six.
The Crouch End students got to hear about the challenges of being in coalition, of how a bill goes through Parliament, asked questions about local campaigning, about becoming an MP, and meeting David Cameron and the Queen.
Lynne Featherstone MP comments:
“The Coleridge kids are an impressive lot! Not only have they already learnt loads about the UK political system and the coalition – they also came really well prepared with clever questions and a genuine hunger for learning about the world we live in.
“It’s fantastic to see such enthusiasm and outstanding teaching. I’m sure these kids are in for great things, and who knows, maybe some will even be future MPs!”
