Mini-Police, politics and odd socks at Tydd St Mary School

Pupils at Tydd St Mary Primary School have enjoyed two very special days.

First, the school's Mini-Police organised an Odd Socks Day and then North East Cambridgeshire MP Steve Barclay paid a visit.

The Odd Socks Day pupils all wore different socks to celebrate everyone being different and unique as part of Ant-Bullying Week. This marked the start of the Mini-Police's work in the school.

Mr Barclay visited the school as part of Parliament Week. The children started the morning involved in a role play where the House of Commons presented a Bill to the Houses of Lords. The Bill ‘Should playtime be extended’ was initially rejected by the Lords as it lacked clarity, but eventually it was presented to Queen- Harriet and became law.

Pupils then had the opportunity to ask Mr Barclay a number of questions in class groups to explore the further workings of Parliament and his own ministerial role in the Department of Health and Social Care.

The morning will be followed by a Suffragette Workshop to mark 100 years since women were given the vote.
