Democracy Week

There’s a general election coming up on 8 June, where adults will vote to decide who will run the UK.
Although children aren’t able to vote, the choices made at the election will have a big impact on the lives of all children across the country.

But what would you do if you were prime minister?

Here are the Lever House Candidates for Prime Minister

Who will you vote for?

Voting has taken place and the new Prime Minister will be announced soon. Will we have a clear winner or will it be a hung parliament?

Play In A Day

Today we have Kiera from Konflux Theatre working with us to put together a Play.

We have been learning about Ancient Greece; the Cradle of Civilisation. Where men were men but no-one dared argue with the women of Sparta! Home to the greatest thinkers, philosophers, writers and athletes of the day.

Today we will meet Alexander the Great, the young general who sulks if he doesn’t get his own way, Herodotus the Historian (who thinks he’s John Travolta) and Archimedes the mathematician who discovers displacement theory.

We will be working together as actors to create a fun, action-packed 15- 20 minute performance, we willl be learning about:

– the value of teamwork

– self-expression

– public speaking

– confidence building

– increased subject knowledge

Will anyone heed poor Cassandra? Will Pandora open the box? Will our hero escape the snake haired Medusa? Find out at the end of the day when we perform our play.

Here is a what we’ve done so far this morning before playtime…
