On the day that adults across the UK made their way to their local polling station, the children in Class 4 were busy preparing their classroom for the School General Election…

The day started in the hall for an assembly. The children learnt about what a General Election is and got the opportunity to explore each political party’s manifesto so they could make their choice.

Each child was given a polling card which they bought with them, after signing in they were given a ballot paper and asked to vote in a booth before placing their vote in the ballot box. A group of children then counted all the votes and a news video was released to the school with the results. It was all very exciting!

 

 

So what were the results?

Labour won our General Election with 80 votes!

Labour 80
Green Party 57
Lib Dem 37
Conservative 27
UKIP 19
