Class 3 Democracy Day

Discussions on Democracy Day helped the children to understand how important it is for decisions to be made fairly and how, as a country, we have a government in place who are chosen by a majority of votes. We ‘voted with our feet’ in an activity which helped us to understand how sometimes, however much we believe something is right, not everyone will agree with our viewpoint. Following successful campaigns consisting of posters and speeches, Harry, Clara, Jasmine (need to confirm this) and James were elected as pupil parliament representatives for Class 3. These children will be the voice of their classmates, taking new ideas and possible improvements to school council meetings.
