Living and Learning: I can take part in democratic decisions

Wednesday 24 October 2018

This week, our living and learning focus is I can take part in democratic decisions. Democracy is a British value. We use democratic decisions a lot in our class and the children understand that this makes whole class decisions fairer.

This week, the class were introduced to a new friend: a bear. The bear needed a name and Leah suggested that it would be a good idea to have a class vote to decide his name.

The children suggested five names between them: Bob, Skye, Oli, Builder and Rosie. The children closed their eyes and put up their hand to show their choice of name.

Bob was the most popular choice with seven votes so we named the bear ‘Bob’. Bob will be joining us for some of our living and learning lessons.
