Class 3 and 4 have been very busy over the last two weeks preparing for the Bishops Nympton political party election. This is very much connected to what is currently happening in the UK politically. With a general election potentially looming, the children are gaining first-hand experience on how political parties are formed and run. So far, the children have formed their parties and decided on one key issue, their party line, which will be the basis of their campaign. Collaboratively in their groups, they have designed their party logos and experimented with printed them using a tri-colour mono printing technique. On Friday we will carry on with our campaign creating propaganda posters to persuade others.
The parties that were formed cover a wide range of issues which party will you vote for?
