Children from Brownsover Community School followed in the Queen’s footsteps when they visited London.

Year two children and staff went to the Houses of Parliament and were shown the same route Her Majesty takes.

They also visited Number 10 Downing Street as part of their project.

Karen Crane, community liaison and teaching assistant at Brownsover Community School, said: “We had a tour round showing us the route the Queen takes into open Parliament at the state opening.

“Students then learned about the traditions and rules of the House. The children also attended a workshop consolidating what they had learnt during the morning. We then went to Downing Street where we had arranged to walk down the street and take some photos.”

Karen said the children learned a lot from the experience.

She added: “The police officers were very helpful answering all the children’s many varied questions.

“We then took a walk up the Mall to Buckingham Palace back into Trafalger Square before getting our evening train home.

“It was a great experience for them all.”

Cameron Milo, 7, said: “I liked seeing all the unicorns and Lions and learning that where ever they are in the House of Parliament means that is where the Queen is allowed to go.”

Krisha Mistry, 6, said: “I really liked standing at the gates of Buckingham Palace and seeing the guards with they big black hats. I now know they are called busbys.”
