This week we have been marking Parliament Week with a 'Taste of Democracy'.
On Monday we had a visit from the Mayor, Councillor Richard Scott, who introduced us to the idea of democracy and the Taste of Democracy project. Along with Kathryn Joy from Marlow Town Council, he explained that over the course of the week we would be campaigning for one of 4 sweet treats and then on Friday everyone in school would get the opportunity to cast their vote for their favourite.
We chose representatives from each year to campaign on behalf of Flapjack, Brownie, Rocky Road and Crispy Caramel. They made a campaign speech to each class to tell them the best thing about their chosen treat and why we should vote for it.
On Friday, Kathryn Joy came back and set up the hall as a polling station with real voting booths and ballot boxes. We each took our ballot paper from the clerk, made our choice and posted the paper into the ballot box.
Once everyone had voted the boxes were emptied and the ballots counted.
The result was:
Crispy Caramel 22
Rocky Road 67
So Rocky Road was declared the winner. Next week every child will be given a Rocky Road to take home and enjoy.
We would like to thank Kathryn Joy and Marlow Town Council for helping us learn about democracy this week
