The Houses of Parliament

On Tuesday November 29th, Holbeach School Council went on a visit to the Houses of Parliament to learn more about the important work that goes on there.

We got on a train to Waterloo East, walked across Westminster Bridge and arrived at the Education Centre of The Houses of Parliament by 9am.


After passing through airport level security, we watched a short film about the history of The Houses of Parliament and then embarked upon our tour of The House of Commons (where the carpets and seats are green) and The House of Lords, which has red seats and carpets.

We entered the Central Hall quietly and were respectful, so we did not distract people from their urgent work. We learnt about MP’s representing the people that voted for them, which is similar to our role at school – we were voted for and represent the other children in our class.


It was interesting seeing where the speaker and the MP’s sit in The House of Commons, and the golden seat for The King in The House of Lords.


Janet Daby (the MP for Lewisham East) spoke to us at the end of our tour about her job and encouraged us to think about becoming future MP’s or even The Prime Minister!
It was an amazing opportunity for us.

We Three Kings of Orient Are

We three kings of Orient are

We three kings of Orient are;
bearing gifts we traverse afar,
field and fountain, moor and mountain,
following yonder star.

Chorus

O star of wonder, star of light,
star of royal beauty bright,
westward leading, still proceeding,
guide us to thy perfect light.

Born a King on Bethlehem’s plain,
gold I bring to crown him again,
King forever, ceasing never,
over us all to reign.

Chorus

Frankincense to offer have I;
incense owns a Deity nigh;
prayer and praising, voices raising,
worshiping God on high.

Chorus

Myrrh is mine; its bitter perfume
breathes a life of gathering gloom;
sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying,
sealed in the stone-cold tomb.

Chorus

Glorious now behold him arise;
King and God and sacrifice:

Alleluia Alleluia

The earth replies

Winter Wonderland

Over the ground lies a mantle of white
A heaven of diamonds shine down through the night
Two hearts are thrillin’ in spite of the chill in
the weather

Love knows no seasons, love knows no climb
Romance can blossom, any old time
Here in the open we’re walkin’ and hopin’
Together

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?
In the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight
We’re happy tonight
Walking in a winter wonderland

Gone away is the bluebird
Here to stay is a new bird
To sing a love song
As we stroll along
Walking in a winter wonderland

In the meadow, we can build a snowman
We’ll pretend that he is Parson Brown
He’ll say, are you married?
We’ll say, no man
But you can do the job when you’re in town

Later on, we’ll conspire, As we dream by the fire
To face unafraid, The plans that we’ve made
Walking in a winter wonderland

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?
In the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight
We’re happy tonight
Walking in a winter wonderland

Gone away is the bluebird
Here to stay is a new bird
To sing a love song
As we stroll along
Walking in a winter wonderland

In the meadow, we can build a snowman
We’ll pretend that he is Parson Brown
He’ll say, are you ready?
We’ll say, no man
But you can do the job when you’re in town

Later on, we’ll conspire, As we dream by the fire
To face unafraid, The plans that we’ve made Walking in a winter wonderland

What Christmas Means to Me

Bah, Bah, Bah, Bah, Bah

Bah, Bah, Bah, Bah, Bah

Oh yeah!
Candles burnin’ low, Lots of mistletoe
Lots of snow and ice, Everywhere we go
Choirs singin’ carols, Right outside my door

All these things and more (all these things and more)
That’s what Christmas means to me my love
(That’s what Christmas means to me, my love)

Oh yeah

I see your smilin’ face, Like I never seen before
Even though I love ya madly, It seems I love you more
That little card you give me, Will touch my heart for sure

All these things and more (all these things and more)
That’s what Christmas means to me my love
(That’s what Christmas means to me my love)

I feel like runnin’ wild, As anxious as a little child
Greet you ‘neath the mistletoe, Kiss you once and then some more
I wish you a Merry Christmas baby

(I wish you a Merry Christmas baby)
And such happiness in the comin’ year
(And such happiness in the comin’ year)

Let’s deck the halls with holly
Sing sweet silent night
Fill the tree with angel hair
And pretty, pretty lights
Go to sleep and wake up
Just before daylight

All these things and more, (All these things and more)
That’s what Christmas means to me my love

(That’s what Christmas means to me my love)


All these things and more, (All these things and more)
That’s what Christmas means to me my love

(That’s what Christmas means to me my love)

Means to me

(Bah Bah Bah Bah Bah)

Means to me

(Bah Bah Bah Bah Bah)

That’s what Christmas means

Christmas means to me!

Peace Child
