Election Week in Year 6

Throughout this week, Year 6 have been learning about the General Election 2017. We decided that we would hold our own election.

Firstly, researching about the party leaders has widened our knowledge on the subject. Once we had finished our research, we formed our own political parties (Labour, Conservative, UKIP, Liberal Democrats, The Green Party and the SNP).

After deciding who would be our leaders, based on their knowledge from earlier research, we held interviews for other pupils to join in the campaign.

Later that day, we role-played the Leaders’ Debate. Each leader: Erik (Lab), Ayo (Cons), and Nathen (Lib Dem), took to the stage to deliver their party’s thoughts, ideas and opinions on important issues in the community. They highlighted issues about housing, education and the NHS. We definitely have some budding politicians among us!

Finally, we held an election. Each pupil had a ballot paper and indicated which party they felt would be best suited to represent them in parliament. The Labour Party won our class election, with the Conservatives the largest opposition.
