On Monday we went to the Parliament in Edinburgh.
When we went in to the Parliament we had to go through security, just like at the airport.
We all thought the entrance hall was very grand and long.
We went into a classroom with Ian – but it wasn’t like our classroom in school. The roof was really really high.It was smaller than our classroom. Ian taught us about the history of the Parliament.
Did you know:
The King was in charge of all the decisions that were made?
M.S.Ps are members of Scottish Parliament?
There should be 129 M.S.Ps? – at the moment there are only 128
Every person has 8 M.S.Ps who represent them?
The new building was connected to an old building called Queensbury house? – It was owned by the Duke of Queensbury. Some people say that a ghost comes out from there at night.
The architect who designed the building was a Spanish man named Enric Miralles?
Miralles built a lot of symbols into the building? – Most of them relate to the Scottish people, the land and the sea.
All the windows represent an honesty between Parliament and the people?
