Scottish Parliament Debating Chamber

This week P5/6/7 have been learning about the Debating Chamber in the Scottish Parliament. We went on the computer and typed in a website about the Scottish Parliament, it had lots of facts about all of the Scottish parties. There were also facts about the public gallery and the media gallery. The media gallery is for journalists and reporters. The Parliament has a mace, it represents Scotland having its first Parliament. The Scottish National Party is the biggest party there is in the Scottish Parliament, they sit in the centre of the room because they are the biggest party. There is a Presiding Officer that lets everyone speak and has one of the most important jobs in the Scottish Parliament. There are also helpers who sit next to the Presiding Officer.

In one of the groups they have been learning about digital time and 12 hour time and sometimes the whole class gets to play time games together.
