  Deansbrook Infant School Elections 

To help the children understand the process of an election we are having our very own Deansbrook Infant School Election. The children in Year 1 and 2 were given the choices for one hour on Friday afternoon. They could 'Play', 'Work' or a combination of 'Play and Work'. The children had to present their case and persuade their class mates to vote for them.

What did the children learn?

  • To understand how to argue and defend a point of view
  • To understand how they can influence decision making through a democratic process
  • To understand the voting process
  • To respect the different opinions of others
  • To understand and respect the democratic process
  • To understand they have a pupil voice and it is listen to
  • Our values- determination, honesty, respect, tolerance

 

What happened?

  • The children chose a candidate to represent “Play”, “Work” and “Play and work”
  • Each candidate gave their reasons why they should vote for their group and answered questions from the rest of the class
  • Children also recorded their opinions

  

  • Children went to their Polling Station and made their vote; their name was checked off

 

        

  • The votes were counted and the winners announced!
  • Each class then either played, worked or worked & played for an hour on Friday afternoon

 

ELECTION OUTCOME

It was a very exciting and emotional election with very close votes in some classes! All candidates put forward their ideas with enthusiasm.

Congratulations to the candidates who won!

What the children said:

Work

“We should work because I want to be a scientist and you need to be really clever”

“If you work now it will pay off in the future and you will get a better job”

“If  you learn more you will be intelligent and get more A levels and so earn more money”

Play

“To play all afternoon is my dream come true”

“You learn whilst you play because you use your imagination”

“You learn when you play because you interact with other people”

Play and work

“We should play and work because we can get smart and still have a break”

“If you play and work it is fair”
