Today (26th of June) we had our election. Basically the year 4s &5s voted for their favourite political party. I know my group was very successful. I know this because we had many votes and each member of our team put themselves out there. Every individual showed that they wanted to win. The year 4s came first at 10:00am. Our group I think went well for that hour. The year 5s came at 11:30. We didn’t do as well. That’s what I think. Our party came 5th or 6th over all. The winners were free fun Friday. I had a great day. I should’ve been at my table more offen. Thank you.
