On Friday 20th September we learned about democracy and what it means in Britain today.
In Reception we learned that our new Prime minister is Theresa May and she works in London at the houses of Parliament and lives at number 10 downing street. We painted pictures of Theresa May and the houses of Parliament.
In year one we talked about voting being a democratic process. We wrote letters to Theresa May to explain why our school was so fantastic! Then we voted for our favourite things and created a bar chart.
In Year two We learned about how Parliament are elected and what they do when they are in power for us in Great Britain today.
In Year Three we held our own debates. We talked about the house of commons - where laws get discussed. We learned that debating isn't about arguing and shouting but listening and talking things thorough.
In Year four we looked at representation- We know that the UK government represents us. We talked about what does a representative need to do and what does that mean.
In year Five we discussed the change of the voting process and learned about the suffragette and votes for women campaign in the C20th. We learned that the democatic process that we are able to see in modern Britain was not always that way. It also highlighted that we should be thankful for the opportunities that we now have.
In year six we Learned about the MagnaCarta and what it represented.
