Stephen Timms Visits Lathom!
The MP for East Ham, Mr Stephen Timms, visited the school for Lathom Question Time. Children attended lower and upper school assemblies and were addressed by Mr Timms, after which they asked a range of questions. The children were able to identify him as a Labour party politician and Prime Minister Theresa May as a Conservative.
After assembly, the children who were not given the floor met the MP in the playground and questioned him further. He also questioned whether some of the children were considering a career in politics. Some said that they were inspired by him and would pursue a life in the government of the country.
