Year 5 learn about democracy

We have 4 parties in our class: Forest Party, Adventure Party, Arty Party and Sport Party. We are each trying to persuade the other children in our class to vote for us (and decide on the extra activity for Friday) in our secret ballot on Friday. We had party meetings today where we decided on our party leader, head of persuasive advertising and head of speeches. We decided on our party logo and tag line and highlighted the benefits of choosing our activity (policies). 

We are learning lots about the benefits of a democracy and how it works.
