MP Harriett Baldwin was faced with a deep question when she paid a visit to Callow End Primary School last Friday (January 31).
Nine-year-old Finn Ellison, a pupil at the school, asked the West Worcestershire MP why there was life on Earth.
The question was the winning entry in a competition run by Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust's Speech and Language Team.
The competition, which was set up to promote the team’s services and the issue some children have with speech and language skills, was open to schools from across the county with Callow End coming out top in West Worcestershire area.
The trust asked children what question they would most like to ask their MP, and Finn's question was picked as the best.
Mrs Baldwin said “Finn posed a very interesting question and which made me think quite a bit and I am sure that the school and his parents are pleased with his winning performance."
Jacqui Woodcock, service manager of the children’s speech and language therapy team, said: “Events like this show that when schools and the speech and language therapy service work together, we can help improve language and communication skills.”
