This week Year 5 (E Group) held mock elections for the Letchworth Youth Council.
The classes teamed up to form political parties and wrote manifestos, leaflets and other election materials to promote their policies, as part of their topic Our Changing World.
They then held a hustings with the electorate (D Group!) listening to speeches before asking the candidates questions and voting for who they thought had the most reasonable and well considered ideas.
A wide range of policies were discussed – from bamboo clothing to tree planting and care home funding in Letchworth.
Well done to all who took part!
