In our Suffragette Study Day, students will visit the Museum of London where they will have the opportunity to explore one of the UK’s largest collections relating to the Suffragette movement. They will develop source analysis skills through the investigation of the museum’s archives.
Later in the day, students will visit the iconic Royal Courts of Justice where they will take on roles such as judge, jury, barristers, witnesses and defendants as they re-enact a real case from the Suffragette movement. During the trial students will develop critical thinking skills, explore the motives behind the Suffragette’s actions, determine their guilt and debate their sentence.
