Today in year 6 we discussed the General Election which is being held today. We talked about what a general election is and how it is being talked about throughout the country. We looked at each of the political parties manifestos, discussing their main points and what impact their plans would have on us and our country.
We then held our own vote in class, all the children lined up outside the 'Polling Station', then came in individually came into their own booth to cast their vote.
Here are the results:
19/30 Labour Party
6/30 Liberal Democrat Party
3/30 Conservative Party
1/30 Green Party
1/30 Brexit Party
In our class the Labour Party won with 63% of the vote.
Here are some pictures of our morning of politics...
Welcome to Year 6! We have got a very busy term ahead! Here is a quick look at what we will be learning:
Maths: We are going to be focussing on using what we know about place value, four operations and shape to answer increasingly challenging questions related to reasoning and problem solving.
English: Our book this term is 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty. It is set in Victorian London and follows Jim Jarvis, a boy who has lost everything! We will be writing a play script focussing on one scene from the book as well as a short story titled; A change in time.
Science: We are going to be learning about the circulatory system, fosuccing on the heart and how blood is pumped around the body.
History: We are linking this work in with our English work and looking at the Victorian's. We will also be looking at Walter Tull.
RE: Our topic is 'The Kingdom of God' We are going to looking into what this is and what it means to us as Christians.
PE: We are going to be looking at developing our netball and football skills.
