As the general election campaign hots up, we will be using this opportunity to teach the children about democracy,
Children in Year 5 and 6 will be able to stand as candidates for the main parties, creating manifestos, debating in front of the whole school and then campaigning for votes on our Election Day on Wednesday 11th December. We hope this will be a really fun experience for the children and teach them a little more about the election process. Each class is going to be a different 'constituency' so that we can also model the first past the post system. Presiding officers and official counters will make sure there is no fraudulent behaviour!
This also links to our quarter two History topic 'The Greeks' as we teach children about the influence the Greek's had on modern day democracy.
Keep checking back for more updates!
