The Town Hall Visit
As part of our local history topic, the year 3’s and 4’s visited St Laurence’s church, the oldest building in Long Eaton. We learned about the church’s history and were allowed to explore this fascinating building.
After this we were welcomed into the Council Chambers at Long Eaton Town Hall, by the mayor of Erewash.
We sat in the councillors’ seats and were treated to tea and juice as she explained the role of the mayor.
Children were then allowed to ask their own questions as the ceremonial mace was passed around the chamber.
Thank you to the church and Town Hall for welcoming us and to all the parents who helped us walk with the children.
