In class today we discussed what the election was all about, who could vote, who they could vote for and we looked at the manifestos of the main political parties. The class then participated in our own election, each being handed a ballot paper and they then placed their vote in the voting booth before placing it in the ballot box. We then had a live graph of our results. It was great to see and hear the passion of many of them
The children had a go at doing some beatboxing, including 4 main sounds.

We competed in our very own version of the Ancient Greek Olympics. We all competed in a sprint, shot putt, long distance, long jump and howler throw. We then crowned a female and male winner for each of the events and they received a wonderful olive wreath crown. Everyone competed brilliantly and had a real go.
