Year 6 discussed the term democracy in PSHE and as a class looked at what it meant. We then had an interesting discussion about whether the children thought they should be the age of 18 before being allowed to vote:
• No it should be 21 (Aflie)
• Yes 18 is right because it is when we become an adult (Tibet)
• Yes 18 is good because it is when you are mature enough to make a decision (Harley)
• I think it should be 16 because you can still be aware and understand what is happening (Oscar)
We then spoke about laws and why we have laws and rules in different circumstances.
