What is Government?

In year 4 we are learning about how our country is governed. We looked at how people vote and the things they vote for. There are different parties [groups] that think of different things.

Most countries are almost always voting. These things are like; raising the amount of people in a class, or lower the amount of children in a class. Leave the EU [Brexit] or to stay to abolish all nuclear weapons.

The parties we voted for were: blue, purple, green, yellow and orange. We all voted for the party we wanted. The blue party won in both of our classes!

We put a cross on a piece of paper in a box next to the party we wanted to vote for. Next, we put all our votes into a tub so no-one could see them.
