Discussing democracy

Year 6 have been discussing the term democracy in PSHE today.

The children then worked in their tables to identify candidates to run for prime minister of the classroom. Once the candidates had been chosen, each child stood up and presented to the rest of the class. They had to state why they thought they should be chosen and what they would do for the school.

Once the candidates had spoken, the children were asked what makes a fair vote and how can we ensure that everything is done fairly and properly. The children had lots of very good ideas and we then were able to move forward with the vote.

Naly and Sophie counted the votes made by all children (and checked their counting more than once to ensure it was accurate) before revealing who had won the election.

Congratulations to Lexi! If we were to have a prime minister of the classroom, it would be you!
