Today was Democracy Day.

In class 1 we spoke about the meaning of democracy and discussed how we might have a democracy in our school. To ensure that we all had our say, we set up a voting station where the children were able to vote for their favourite book. Our members of pupil parliament did a fantastic job of counting the votes and revealed which story would be shared during our story time at the end of the day.

Class 1 loved having a say in our classroom and can not wait to vote for their end of day story tomorrow!
