On Wednesday 21st June, Leagrave held a very exciting Enabling Enterprise day with a focus on ‘A Day in Politics’. The day taught our pupils all about the Parliamentary system and how our government and its members are chosen. Throughout the day, children worked in groups to form their own parties, they developed their own campaigns and manifestos and by the end of the day, each pupil voted, via a ballot box, for their party of choice.
The children were fully immersed in the excitement of the day and developed a well informed understanding of British Parliament and the key figures that make up members of parliament today. All the teachers were incredibly impressed by how well the pupils worked together, with very little input from adults. They displayed many of our school values throughout the day and we were very proud of their effort and the outcomes of the day. Well done everyone!
