House Captains

In Year 6 the children are given the opportunity to become a House or Vice Captain for their houses: Ashley, Hookfield, Horton or Waterloo.

Through the theme, ‘Vote for Me’, we learn about the electoral process and how democracy works. During English lessons, we study famous inspirational speeches from significant leaders from the past. We spend time identifying and analysing the features of persuasion used and consider the effect on the audience. We then apply these to our speeches.

The whole school is involved in electing their new House and Vice House Captains. Each house (from across all year groups) come together to hear the Year 6s perform their speech and then get to vote for their preferred candidate.

Once elected, the captains have a responsibility to be the role models for their houses throughout the year. Part of their job is to organise the collating of house points and values buttons each week and hoisting their house’s flag if they win. As well as this, they represent their house on sports day; if their house wins they are encouraged to give an acceptance speech.
