In the Hazel class (Year 4), we have been having lots of fun learning all about the different political parties for the United Kingdom. We analysed the manifestos of the different parties and had some great debates about the different issues that arose. The children were then encouraged to make up their own mind about who they would vote for based on the party they agreed with.
On election day, we held our very own vote which was complete with polling booth and ballot box. All the children were so inspired and we may even have some future MPs!
