A day before the United States decided who would be their new President, Years 4 and 6 pupils here gathered in the School Hall to hold their own election.
Mr Pinks explained the US election process using a Powerpoint presentation. Then candidates for each party were selected. Each pupil represented one of the US states: they either had to have a 'primary' vote, or to announce the result of their 'caucus' discussion.
Votes were then cast for the Republican or Democratic Party. To secure a win, the candidates needed 270 of the electoral votes to become President Elect. It was very close - 260 votes for the Democrats and 275 votes for the Republicans.
