For Parliament Day, our children were given the opportunity to try politics themselves in class. The children were given a list of 8 manifestos that are used in workshops at the Houses of Parliament. The were split into parties, and then had to design rosettes for their party and chose 2 of the manifestos that their 'party' would stand for. They then had to present their party to the rest of the class, and the class voted on which party they think had the best manifesto and costs.
Representatives of the school council from each class were very lucky to, thanks to the work of Miss Young, visit the actual Houses of Parliament for the day and learn lots of great things about how our country is run. An enjoyable and insightful day.
