To coincide with the General election ( May 7) this year, Arboretum will be holding its very own Election process.
Classes need to ask for volunteers who wish to represent one of the four animal parties -
FROG DUCK CAT BEE
They will need to persuade their class and then phase why they should be chosen – eg speech , poster, badge ,emblem , slogan and logo.
We will end up with four candidates for each party – consisting of a pupil from FS, Y1/2 , Y3/4 and Y5/6. They will then meet and plan their election strategy and campaign. ( aided by a member of staff )
A special assembly on MAY 6 at 2.30pm will give each party the opportunity to present their ideas to the whole school
Everyone in school will then have a chance to vote and ballot boxes will be distributed to each class on Thursday 7.
A count will be organised in the afternoon, involving pupils, and the result announced in assembly on Friday 8 by the Returning Officer.
