Voting primary resource

Younger pupils find out about voting through story, images and discussion, using this new resource pack.

The ‘Find out about Parliament’ series, is an introduction to the work of Parliament through activities, stories and imagery, for pupils aged 5-8.

The resources have practical and accessible ideas to get pupils thinking about how they make decisions in a group. Younger pupils will enjoy listening to the stories which explore each theme in a familiar context, while the poster pack provides a stimulus to extend pupils’ understanding of each concept and how it relates to Parliament.
