The Scottish Parliament



 

We have been learning lots about the work of the Scottish Parliament. We have thoroughly enjoyed finding out about the different political parties, the main issues in Scottish politics, the logos used by different parties and the meaning and affects of both democracy and dictatorship.
To finish our topic, we created our own political parties in groups. We decided on a name, a logo and created a manifesto of the main policies of our party. We then presented these to the rest of the class before welcoming questions and having debates about the policies.
We have learned so much from this topic and Miss Smyth is convinced there are some future politicians in her midst!
