Inspired by the ideas, themes and history behind PROCESSIONS, we have created a teaching resource as a starting point for schools across the UK, 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, which will encourage pupils and 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 young people to explore their own views and opinions on gender equality today, as well as gaining an understanding about the importance of democracy and using their 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 contains creative ideas and is modular so it can be followed through from beginning to end or activities can be picked out and used individually.
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.

These standalone resources can be used alongside participation in the 10th June 2018 event but have been designed for on-going cross-curricular use in school.
Why not hold your own procession in school and make your own banners? Or create a display in your classroom or school reception?
