Politics in Year 5 (January - March) - My Manifesto
Students are led through 5 different topics across 5 weeks. These include policing, foreign affairs, tax and spend and more. On the 6th week they present their manifesto to the class - ideally discussing overall vision and ideology and supporting it with clear manifesto pledges. The winning group from each class presents their manifesto (either on video or in assembly) to the whole school before every student in the school votes for their preferred 'party'. This was done simultaneously across St Peter’s and Palm Bay with the combined year groups voting for the winning Manifesto!
