Year 5 Meet the Suffragettes
 
Today the suffragettes visited West Heath Primary school and chained themselves to the railings in their fight for women's rights to vote.  We had the chance to speak to Emmeline Pankhurst and Emily Davison about their role in the movement.  We decided enough was enough and took part in parliamentary ping-pong to pass the bill to give women the right to vote.  
 
We also had a visit from Mrs Lily Pettifer, who made us aware that it was not only women, but also men (including her husband, Charlie) who were not allowed to vote because they did not own property.
 
In our classrooms, we held a House of Commons debate about whether school holidays should be longer (believe it or not, many children rejected this motion).
