This week they were lucky enough to be able to bring the topic to life with a visit to the Pankhurst Centre in Manchester. At the centre they took part in an interesting workshop and learnt lots about the origins of the movement. They dressed up as Suffragettes and were eager to hear about what life was like back in 1903 when the very first meeting of the Suffragettes took place.
In addition to their visit to the Pankhurst Centre, the boys and girls also visited the Holy Name Church to marvel at the amazing Gothic architecture and the stunning Whitworth Art Gallery.
Headteacher Norah Johnson commented "As well as being fascinating and informative, the trip enabled our pupils to learn valuable skills, especially our Year 6 pupils who are going off to secondary schools soon, including travelling by bus and looking out for dangers when getting on and off buses. The children learnt to watch out for cycle lanes and to develop awareness of walking along crowded footpaths. It was an action-packed day out and we all enjoyed visiting parts of the city that a lot of us had not seen before."
