We set up a voting station for the children to exercise their right to vote
It’s polling day on the 6th May where our adults will be voting in the elections. So, we thought we would experience this at nursery too by voting for our book of the day at our own voting station! We enjoyed counting and making towers with the blocks to determine which book had won our vote.
