Every year, UK Parliament Week hosts a programme of events which aims to foster closer engagement between the public and their Parliament. In its eighth year UK Parliament Week is set to be bigger than ever with thousands of organisations taking part in every constituency across the UK. This year Easterside Academy are taking part and children in Key Stage 1 and 2 will participate in some of the following activities:

  • What is the UK Parliament?
  • What is democracy?
  • Debate
  • Vote 100

2018 marks 100 years since the UK Parliament passed a law which allowed the first women, and all men, to vote in elections for the first time.

  • Campaigning
  • Ballot Box

We hope to share some of their activities with everyone and Parliament UK on our Twitter feed.
