20th January was a very important day in the UK – Democracy Day! Therefore this afternoon for collective worship we will be looking at democracy, which is a really important British value.
Definition of Democracy.
In a democracy, the government is elected by the people.
Everyone who is eligible to vote has a chance to have their say over who runs the country.
Take a look at the following links and watch the Newsround video to get a deeper understanding of what Democracy means before our discussion this afternoon.
Somes questions to think about. Please comment me your answer.
1. Do you think its a good thing that we have free speech and live in a democracy? Why?
2. If you were Prime Minister for the day, what would you change? Would other people agree with you?
