About the sentence

to take part in sth

To take part in something = to participate or be involved in something. e.g. I'm not very political now, but I took part in several big protests when I was younger.


If something 'slipped your mind' then you forgot it. This is a useful idiom to use when you're apologising for something. e.g. I'm really sorry about not posting your letter - it slipped my mind.

I don’t usually take part in discussions at work. I usually let others do the talking, I’m a little shy in such circumstances.
