Dear Chris Elmore
Hello, our names are Laetitia, Ruby, Chloe, Joshua, Dylan A and Corum and we are Year 4/5/6 pupils at Llanharan Primary School. We are writing to you today as in our class we are studying the 2017 General Election. We are holding our own election this Thursday. Our class has been divided into 5 groups with each group taking one of the five parties who are standing in the Ogmore constituency. We chose our parties at random and we selected Labour.
We are going to have to try to persuade our Years 1-4 that your party is the one to vote for. To do this we need to give reasons to persuade the other classes that the Labour party policies are the ones that will suit their families and themselves. Which of your policies affect our schools and our community the best? Which of your policies to do you think would appeal best to children our age.
We are wondering, if at all possible could you send us any information, leaflets or resources to help us with our campaign. This would have a massive impact on how many votes we would get form our pupils for our Labour party. Also, would you be able to send us a supporting tweet at our class Twitter feed @lps140club or a video message.
Thanks for taking the time to read this email. Good luck with the General Election.
Llanharan Primary Year 4/5/6 Labour Party
