Last week, Year 4 delved deeper into the topic of ‘democracy’.
Democracy comes from two Greek words:
Dêmos means people and Krátos means rule or strength.
So, democracy means ‘rule by the people’.
- How a general election works.
- The role of an MP, and the Prime Minister.
- What political parties are.
- How I can find out about the views of politicians, and why this is important.
The important part of this learning is that democracy is about more than just voting. There are lots of ways that people can participate and make their voice heard! You can email your MP, campaign for what you believe is right and petition your government.
In Year 4, we participate in voting for our rewards, what books we read and who we believe has been most successful.
