The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

YOUNG­STERS grilled their MP about his role, and what he has done to make a dif­fer­ence, in a ques­tion and an­swer ses­sion.

Year 4 pupils at the Duke of Bed­ford Pri­mary School in Thor­ney have been study­ing the topic Peo­ple Who Make a Dif­fer­ence. They in­vited Ste­wart Jack­son, MP for Peter­bor­ough, into the school to dis­cuss what he has done as a mem­ber of Par­lia­ment.

Jackii Crock­ett, head­teacher, said: “The pupils had to think about peo­ple who have made a dif­fer­ence.

“They asked a po­lice­man, the Mayor and Ste­wart Jack­son to come in.

“They asked him what he had done since join­ing Par­lia­ment.

“They were very im­pressed, but I don’t think any of them want to be­come politi­cians at the mo­ment.”

The class also stud­ied fig­ures in his­tory in­clud­ing Marie Curie and Mothertheresa.

Mr Jack­son also spoke to the Year 6 group while he was in the school.

The young­sters are also pre­par­ing for their Queen’s Ju­bilee cel­e­bra­tion fea­tur­ing a con­cert on Fri­day, June 1 fol­lowed by a pic­nic on the school field.
