For a couple of weeks p5/6 and p7 have been learning about elections and have been organizing their own parties. We all got split in to groups and there were six parties. The six parties were, the peace party, t.a.p which stood for the animal party, the green team, the fun party, fruitastic and w.o.f which stands for world of fitness. They all had slogans,
Peace Party- Make Peace, Have a Break
Green Team- We are Green and we are Keen
t.a.p- We stand for the Animals
Fruitastic- Fruity Fun
Wof- Fitness for Life
Fun Party- Fun for one and Fun for All!!!!!!
On Monday was our hustings, each group took it in turn to come and present their party on front of the school. In the presentation was the party leaders speech, the groups power point and the video which told you about them and how they would help people.They also went round at breaks handing out stickers so people would vote for them.
On Tuesday was the voting day where everyone in the school voted for who they thought would be the best. We set it up like a proper election, we had an electoral register, a ballot paper and everyone voted separately in the polling stations.
On Wednesday Mrs Clark and Miss Brown counted up all the votes: here are the results;
6th place- The Peace Party with 6 votes
5th place- wof with 7 votes
4th place- The Green Team with 9 votes
3rd place- Fruitastic with 11 votes
2nd place- Tap with 18 votes
1st!- Fun party which had 26 votes !!! 🙂
This was all part of our election topic and to finish our election topic, we are going to write our captains speech and use as many techniques as possible.
