PROCESSIONS Women’s Suffrage, democracy and gender equality exploration

PROCESSIONS Women’s Suffrage, democracy and gender equality exploration

Inspired by the ideas, themes and history behind PROCESSIONS https://www.processions.co.uk/, our aim is for this resource to be a starting point for your pupils/students to explore and learn about the history of Women’s Suffrage, democracy and gender equality. We have created some simple and easy to follow activities to include in your teaching plans, which will encourage your pupils/students to develop historical knowledge and awareness of Women’s Suffrage as well as offering an opportunity to discuss gender equality within today’s context. Activities encourage responses through discussion, movement, debate, music and visual art. The resources are primarily designed for Years 5-8 in England and Wales, Years 6-9 in Northern Ireland and P6-S2 in Scotland, but they’re easily accessible for lower and upper age ranges. We want to encourage your pupils/students to explore their own views and opinions on gender equality today, as well as gaining an understanding about the importance of democracy and using your vote. Only 57% of 18-19-year olds voted in the last election (source YouGov website) and we want this project to encourage young people to vote in the future and inspire them to have their voice heard. This resource pack provides creative ideas as to how to work with your pupils/students. It is modular so it can be followed through from beginning to end or activities can be picked out and used individually. At times you might work with the class as a whole and at other times you may task smaller groups with the different activities provided. We have suggested subject links as part of each activity to help make useful connections with your teaching plans. These activities when paired with our banner-making toolkits will give your students/pupils stimuli and inspiration for the content of their banners. We would love schools to take part in the PROCESSIONS on the 10th of June, but acknowledge that this may not be possible for all, so we want to stress that this pack can be used before or after the event and used to inspire pupils, students and teachers using the themes and ideas behind PROCESSIONS. Produced by Artichoke and commissioned by 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary, PROCESSIONS will commemorate 100 years since the first women in the UK won the vote. On Sunday 10th June 2018, thousands of women and girls, those who identify as women and non- binary individuals, will form four epic processions in the four political capitals of the UK – Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London. Given green, white or violet to wear, the colours of the suffrage movement whose initials stood for “Give Women Votes”, they will together create waves of colour as they celebrate the centenary of women’s suffrage.

Graphics are by GraphicsPassion, and the font can be downloaded here: https://www.dafont.com/sea-balance.font? I collected the graphics onto the back page so you can play around with them as images if needed. The days can also be reordered to fit your timetable. Hope it’s helpful!

This pack is ideal for the first weeks in school when teachers and students are still getting to know each other. This is a nice way to help the students express themselves and telling others about themselves. This pack includes a handout in which the students have to write/ draw about themselves. Students will love the idea that they have to measure their height and put their finger print on paper. It is also a nice way to encourage students to talk to each other and help each other to fill the paper. Also in the pack there is included posters with a quote saying that we are each unique and beautiful at the same time. The posters are included both in colour and black and white. At last the pack includes pictures of kids holding a circle. The students can be encouraged to write/draw what they like, what they wish or something else that reflects them. This lesson/ craft can be easily integrated into the theme Myself. Hope you like :) Don’t forget to follow me! :)

Positive Postcards

Positive Postcards

The two images can be printed back to back in colour on white card. The front of the positive postcard shows a superhero holding up a rainbow with the words ‘Power of Positivity’. The writing side of the postcard includes a positive poem to encourage children to believe in themselves and boost their confidence. There is space to write a short message as well as an address which can be sent home or it could be the class name and school address. I used these for several purposes: Improve mental health and well-being. Engage children with behaviour problems catching them doing something postive. As a reward system. Given to children who have low self-esteem and confidence. If used in the class room rather than sent home, I would leave it in the child’s place at the end of the day so it was a surprise for them in the morning. Please note: The cover image only shows part of the postive postcard logo.
