Equality and Human Rights Commission at Middle Street

Middle Street was recently asked by the Equality and Human Rights Commission to take part in an art project. Year 6 were asked as part of a lesson on representative democracy and citizenship to draw a portrait of someone they think represents a typical politician. The follow up is a visit from the Equality and Human Rights Commission representatives to discuss children’s views. An MP will also join the group for what looks to be an interesting discussion. As we all know Middle Street children are very accomplished at expressing their views! The visit is to take place next Tuesday morning and will of course feature in the local press. What an exciting opportunity for Year 6!
