As part of Year 5's work on the Ancient Greeks and Democracy they visited Birmingham's Council House and Art Gallery.
They had a guided tour of the Council House which included the Lord Mayor's Parlour where they were able to sit at the Lord Mayor's desk and see the signatures of famous visitors who have visited such as Prince Charles.
Later, they took part in a mock debate in the Council Chamber where they were able to sit in the Lord Mayor's chair and bring the chamber to 'order'!
After, pupils also visited the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery where they looked at ancient Greek artefacts.
