Yesterday in Year 5, we had a visit from Elliott from the Sheffield United Community Foundation, and we learned a little bit about how our government works. First we thought about what a general election might be, and then Elliott explained it to us, using some very helpful videos. Then we talked about what a manifesto is and what political parties do when they are trying to get elected. Lastly, we worked in pairs to come up with our own manifestos.

Elliott will be back next seek so watch this space!
