(These particular sheets come with a TRIGGER WARNING - violence/ descriptions of brutality and graphic details).

Aimed at a higher age group, this is an ideal work pack for a history / politics class looking to understand more about democracy and reform.
The Peterloo Massacre was an important event in local history. In this pack you will find:

  1. An overview of the Peterloo Massacre which explains the reasons why people were protesting and the consequences of the massacre.
  2. A following page of comprehension questions.
  3. An eye-witness account from Archibald Prentice.
  4. A following page of comprehension questions.
  5. Samuel Bamford’s eye-witness account
  6. Activity page, including a discussion group and directions to design your own banner for the Manchester Meeting.
  7. A worksheet with a template for banner designs.
  8. A homework activity instructing students to write their own article about the Peterloo Massacre.

PLEASE NOTE - this work pack is rather text heavy. The Peterloo Massacre also covers sensitive topics about the right to protest and talks about police brutality with descriptions of violence, injury and murder and should be navigated with sensitivity. As such this work pack is aimed an older student body.
