Our Mini Election
While the Conservative Party may be in power in the country as a whole, it was the Green Party that triumphed in the children's mini election at school! Their policies of no SATs and no phonics assessments were very popular with the children.
Mrs Owen led an assembly where each of the major parties were represented by members of year 6 and were able to outline some of their policies. After the vote, the Green party had the biggest vote, although they were going out to play to negotiate a coalition as they didn't quite have the majority.
It was great that the children were so interested and involved in what was an important day for the country. There were lots of discussions throughout the day about how Parliament worked and what situations led to a coalition government.
There were also some very impassioned comments from some of our Key Stage 2. Some future politicians in the making?
