School Assembly on Democracy (British Values) - KS1 & KS2
Immediate download of a school assembly on democracy. This assembly includes a power point which shows what democracy means and why it is important. Part of our British values assembly series.
The Powerpoint includes 20 slides and explains the meaning of democracy and how the rules of democracy work. The children learn about voting, political parties and parliament. The unit also includes a short story in which a teacher allows her class to watch a film as a special treat and her class take a vote to decide which film to watch. In a very tight vote, the children who decided to abstain from the vote then find the film very boring. An interesting story to teach children the value of democracy and the power to swing the vote and influence the result.

Poppy was really excited to go to school! It was the last day of term and she knew that Miss Lewis was going to let them watch a film that afternoon. She had tucked her favourite DVD in her bag just before coming down for breakfast and all the way to school she thought about how fun it would be to watch the favourite parts of the film with her friends!
"Right children. As promised I am going to let you watch a film this morning as a special treat. Put your hands up if you have brought a film you want to watch?" asked Miss Lewis after break. Poppy put her hand up but Jason had brought in a different film and was desperately waving it in the air.
"Ah! We have two different DVDs so we might have to take a vote children. Remember if you don't vote, you might have to watch something you don't like for the next 90 minutes. This is your time to speak!" Miss Lewis sounded serious.
