Earlier this week, the Politics Department ran an extension session on the subject of Presidential Elections in the USA for The Prep’s Year 8 Scholarship set. President of the Morley Society, Pablo Espona Barbara (L6, L), gave a brilliant presentation on the process of becoming President of the USA. He was fluent, funny and knowledgeable: the Prep pupils were captivated and learnt a lot!
The Scholarship set was then split into three groups where they completed three carousel activities: a card sort activity where students had to sort cards into facts about UK Elections and facts about US Elections - thanks to Tommy Maddinson (L6, S) for making this activity; a timeline activity of interesting and influential US Presidents - thanks to Anna McIntyre (L6, Q) for making this activity; and a debating activity where pupils argued the case for both Clinton and Trump, run by Pablo. The session ended with the three groups competing against each other in a quiz written by Mrs Eldred. The session was really enjoyable and the Scholars learnt a lot about not only the US elections but also the study of Politics.
