British Values What Is Democracy? This week we have been looking at the value of ‘Democracy’ in more detail. We had a think about the meaning of the word and how it originates from Ancient Greece. We explored who rules Great Britain. Many children thought that the King ruled the country; however, we then discussed that democracy means that the country is ruled by the people. For the older children, we looked at some of the large political parties and tried to recognise the colours and leaders of these parties. At home, if you are able to find the time, it would be great if key stage two could continue to ask you questions about the leaders of the parties and explore democracy in more detail.
