Democracy Week

Parliament and Democracy week at Wibsey Primary School!

We have had a fantastic week learning about parliament and democracy.

This week has played a vital role in helping our children to develop their understanding of rights, responsibilities, rules and the law.

Children across the school have been celebrating their pupil voice by learning about democracy, parliament and the voting process. We had parliament books in our reading areas, found out about campaigning and took part in class debates. It was great to see our learners communicate clearly and articulately share their opinions on things that matter to them.

We look forward to finding out more about the different learning tasks related to parliament and democracy that were completed by children from Year 1 to 6.

Alongside this, the school relaunched the old school council as a new parliament!

Children from KS1 and KS2 will act as class members of our school parliament across three constituencies in school. Children thought carefully about the skills and attributes that they expect from their PM.

Candidates worked hard to prepare a manifesto and thought very carefully about the pledges that they wanted to make to their class peers.  We had a polling station in school where all children enjoyed the voting process.

The outcome of the school election will be announced next week.

We were delighted to finish off the week with a visit from Judith Cummins who spoke in our assemblies, met with candidates and took part in our very own question time!
