We aim to promote this British Value by demonstrating how democracy works by discussion, decision – making and voting. For example:
Encouraging children to know their views count and their opinions are important – for example, following the children’s interests for topics and activities.
Encouraging children to make decisions together e.g. when sharing a group toy, like a large train set.
Encouraging children to see their role in the ‘bigger picture,’ e.g. linking to part of a family, class, group, school, community etc.
Providing opportunities for the children to vote between choices of activity, for example – choosing a theme in the role play area, choosing a book for story time by a show of hands.
Each child will also have the opportunity to vote for members of the school council.
