The General Election - June 2017

In KS2 we have been learning about ‘democracy’ as part of our Ancient Greek and PSHE work.
We have learnt all about how British democracy works, including how parliament functions. Year 5 & 6 have analysed the manifestos of all of the major political parties standing in June 2017.
They then campaigned for that party and participated in delivering persuasive speeches to years 3 & 4. On June 8th, we held our own KS2 election and all of the children voted for the party whose manifesto and speeches they felt were most effective.
The votes were counted and verified, and we can announce that the Labour Party were elected at Evington Valley with 74% of the vote, followed by the Green Party in second place with 20% of the vote.

It was a nice way to raise the awareness of voting; it gave me the chance to voteand it taught me why it is so important. Overall it was very enjoyable.

Maryam (Year 6 Pupil)

It was very knowledgable and gave everyone information on politics and gave views on each party. It taught us how to vote and I really enjoyed it.

Fatima (Year 6 Pupil)

This activity taught us about politics and told us each parties views and it was fun presentig to Year 3 & 4.

I enjoyed this as it helped me to express my dream in arts and creativity. Also during this project we had the honour of singing ‘Yes you can’ to Prince Harry. My mind exploded when I got chosen to perform this inspirational song to royalty and I will cherish the moments in the Yes you can project.
