Trip to London



32 student reporters from Whitley Academy went to London on a trip to the Houses of Parliament.

There we learnt about the voting system in the U.K. We also looked at the eleven main politic parties across the country.

We took a tour around the House of Commons, the House of Lords and the monarchy. It was amazing to be able to stay in Westminster Hall.

After the tour we went to a workshop about getting our voice heard and what we can do to get our voice heard in school and in our community. During our travels to Madame Tussauds, a teacher got on the wrong train and some pupils followed her on to the train.

The train started moving before we were able to tell them that it is was the wrong train, but we found them at the station that we were supposed to get off at. Later we made it to Madame Tussauds (Madame Tussauds is a wax museum which can be found all over the world.)

In the museum, some people went around the chambers of horror and screamed four times! I wasn’t even able to go through the entrance of it after hearing the music playing.
