A Day in Politics at Ark Byron

All classes held elections for the "Skills Builder" Challenge Day.  We work with an organisation called Skills Builder/Enabling Enterprise to bring real life challenges into the classroom that provide opportunites for chidlren to build lifeskills. Challenge days aim to build pupils' characters by developing, for example, problem solving, team building, leadership and resilience.  This time, classes watched debates, then took part in their own.  They created their own political parties, made rosettes and presented their election promises at hustings!
