The school council members talked about what it means to be part of Britain and looked at the British Values:
- Rule of Law
- Individual Liberty
- Mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.
We thought about what each one might mean and what we do in our school that links in with each value. We came up with ideas which included; voting for our school council members, learning about different religions and beliefs, finding out how we are the same and different, and the ‘golden rules’ in our school. The children then did some writing about British Values for our display.
In this meeting we discussed what it means to be a school council member. The children came up with lots of brilliant ideas and talked about what they are looking forward to doing this year as school council members. They then wrote down some ideas to put onto our school council display!
On Wednesday we focused on British Values and had a class Election.The children voted for who they wanted to be the School Council representatives for class 4.
First they put themselves forward as candidates.
Then wrote a little speech about why we should choose them.
Then they used a ballot card to vote for one boy and one girl.
Finally we created a tally to help us count all of the votes.
The winners for this year were:
Zoe and Jay
We had a great class Election Day!
This week we voted for our new school council members; the children in each class voted for one girl and one boy and put their ballot papers into the ballot box. The votes were counted up and our new school council were members given their special badges. They are all very excited to get started!
