On Wednesday we learnt all about the General Election. We read all the different parties manifestos and talked about what they meant. After that we created our own parties and wrote our own manifestos. We ended up with 6 party leaders. The parties were – Your Belief in Parliament Party, Schnappy Party, UKEHP (United Kingdom Environmental Helping Party), Leeds United Party, Blue Party and the Jeremy May Party.
Each of these parties then presented their manifestos and took questions about them from the audience. We then all cast our votes. After counting carefully the returning officer announced –
3rd place – Your Belief in Parliament Party – 5 Votes (Green rosette)
2nd place – Blue Party – 10 Votes (Yellow rosette)
1st Place – Schnappy Party – 18 Votes (Green and Yellow Rosette)
Abdul the party leader of the Schnappy party was extremely passionate about his promises and even campaigned on the playground. Well done Abdul!
