We love celebrating our democracy and so of course we are taking the opportunity of a REAL election next week to hold our own mock election!
We ordered a full ‘mock election’ pack from the Houses of Parliament and were excited to receive a fantastic pack of resources to set up our own democratic contest.
Children from every year have really enjoyed getting involved in holding an election and campaigning and voting ourselves.
Our four delegates to the South Lakes Pupil Parliament are using their expertise to act as returning officers, and four children from acrossdefault the school have stood as candidates.
Class 2 have spent some time thinking about how policies help us to decide how to vote, as well as deciding what type of policy they would prioritise in government.
It’s been great fun going through the process of registering to vote and receiving our polling cards! We’re excited about December 12th!
