What is a government?

A PSHE and SMSC project for Year 4 children

What is a government? How are they elected? How does a government explain what they stand for?

In this project, children learn what a government is and how its politicians are elected. They investigate the role of a prime minister, considering the qualities that are needed to be effective in this position. They also explore issues that are important to them by writing a personal manifesto. Finally, children debate if elections are the best way to choose a government.
