Worship 19th April 2017 – Democracy

With the news yesterday of the next general election being on Thursday 8th June, we looked at one of the important British values that we are lucky to have; democracy.

We learnt about some of the politicians at the last general election and the ones who will be seeking to become the next Prime Minister at this election.

Adults can vote and we are lucky to be have the opportunity to have a say in what happens in Britain. We looked at the work that Emmeline Pankhurst did to get women the vote at the start of the last century.

We also looked at Kirkham Town Council, Lancashire County Council and our own school council and how these are important places where our democracy can be seen in action.

We finished by having a vote. All the children had the opportunity to for the music on the way out of worship. They voted for a pop song as opposed to some classical music!
