Democracy in Action at Hurdsfield (5.3.2018)
Today GIRL POWER ruled at Hurdsfield as we learnt about the British Value of Democracy and the fight of the Suffragettes to ensure that women were allowed to vote like their male counterparts 100 years ago!
To illustrate how unfair it was to allow one group of people to vote and make decisions over someone else, for one day only the girls were in charge! They decided how long the boys could have for their playtime, who could eat their lunch first and what activities they could use. The boys were NOT impressed!
At the end of the day, each class discussed how this made them feel and reflected on how unfair it is to allow one person or group of people to make decisions on behalf of others. A powerful message which emphasised that despite the fact we are all different, we are all equal. Our difference makes us the same!
