This week has been a hive of activity as Willow Class children have grouped into four teams. Along with idea discussion, mapping their thoughts, writing manifestos, creating rosettes, posters, PowerPoints and video messages the children have canvased within the school for support for their party.
Four parties were looking for votes to support, amongst many things, their lunch time activities, school garden projects, charity fund raising, competitions and healthy eating.
Today was Election Day and once all of the children had heard the party speeches they voted for their choice. The quality of debate and campaigning was really high throughout and all pupils involved impressed with their level of knowledge and engagement and helped the children to understand and engage in the political system which is a particularly vital part of preparing them for life beyond education. Congratulations are due to The Little Hadham Heroes Party, who won the election with 35 votes.
The School Council and Captains look forward to working with you to make your promises a reality!
