My Day With Rachel Reeves - by Jayden Toole Age 11

My Day With Rachel Reeves


Rodley Nature Reserve

When I arrived at Rachel’s office I was told what we would be doing.
The first thing that she said was that we would be going down to
Rodley Nature Reserve.

So about 15 minutes later we set off. When we arrived we was greeted by a police man (who was really friendly). Then we walked into the café we was greeted by some of the volunteers from Natural England.

After saying hello we had a guided tour round the reserve. Even though I wasn’t at school I still learnt stuff. We went down through dragon fly lake and even saw some swans.

Leeds Metropolitan University

So after we had been to Rodley Nature Reserve we headed to the main building of Leeds Metropolitan University to have lunch with Susan Price (the vice chancellor of Leeds Metropolitan University)

When we arrived we went in the lift up to floor 5 (the top floor) where Susan Price’s office was. We waited outside for about 5 minutes until we was told to go into the conference room where we were greeted by Susan Price.

During lunch we was talking about the prices of university and if they will rise by the time some of us went.

After we had finished talking about the prices I asked Susan Price and Rachel Reeves some questions.

Door Knocking

Because of the upcoming election we went round houses and flats to ask who they were voting and if they were voting.

We started off in a block of flats which had 14 floors. We covered them in around 15 minutes and then went outside to knock on house doors. It was a very hot and sunny day.

Because it was hot, we all got an 99 from the ice cream man.


All in all I had an excellent day and the ice cream was really tasty :D
Also I can see how hard rachel’s job is and how hard her team work in supporting leeds west.
