Living and Learning: democracy

Sunday 05 November 2023

Year 4 have been considering what is democracy and how we can become involved in democratic decisions.

Democracy, one of the British Values, means ‘rule by the people‘. It comes from the Greek words dêmos (people) and krátos (rule or strength).

We learnt about how democracy works in this country. This included learning about central and local government, what services government provide for the people and the role of political parties.

After that, we held our own democratic vote to elect our JLT members for this year.

Congratulations to our two new JLT members and well done to everyone who took part!
