OPTIONAL!

Do you want to be Head Boy or Girl?

If so, please begin to think about what you want to say to the class!

In each class we will be holding a lesson where you can speak to your classmates on why they should vote for you. Each class will then vote and the two children who receive the most votes in each Year  5 class will then speak in front of the school. As a school they will then vote for the tow children they wish to be Head Boy and Girl in Year 6.
