Today we welcomed Mr Sam Tarry, our local MP. Who made a visit to Uphall Primary School on Friday 4th December 2020 in order to speak and respond to the children and hear their views about how we can improve our community and the environment in our surrounding area.
The pupils had completed an environmental walk at the beginning of Autumn term. They were very disappointed with litter and abandoned furniture, they decided to create a postcard with a message to Sam Tarry their local MP.
Mr. Tarry, explained how democracy means that anybody can stand in an election to represent the residents of an area, he was very impressed with how the children had used and recycled, collected rubbish to create an amazing learning space.
We also discussed the changes that could be made to improve both our local community and the country as a whole. The pupils raised various issues including reducing plastic waste in order to protect our ocean wildlife.
Local MP Luke said: ‘It was a pleasure to meet the pupils and teachers at Uphall Primary School’ he further added that all of Y3 would be invited to the Houses of Parliament in the near future.
