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.

TELL ME ABOUT - Hitler & Nazi Germany

TELL ME ABOUT - Hitler & Nazi Germany

Please use this mat as a revision game to play in groups in the classroom. This should be printed on A3 paper and laminated so that it can be re-used. This means that students can write their initials on their square instead of using counters. The way the game is played can be manipulated. However, the main instructions are as follows (also included on sheet): This is to be played in groups. Each student has a counter. They roll a dice and move that number of places. They then have to tell or explain to the others in their group about that topic. If they manage 15 seconds, they get 1 points. If they manage 25 seconds, they get 2 points. If they get 35 or more seconds, they get 3 points. Please use a great revision resource for group work. Please also leave any feedback for future revision resources and how to improve them.
