Y2 Wonder Women Impact Day - Maple Class
International Women’s Day (8th March)
This afternoon, after swimming, we had our ‘Impact Day’. We wrote about and shared people who are inspirational to us and explained our reasons why.
After lunch, we learnt about the Suffragette movement and Emmeline Pankhurst. We discussed the importance of having equal rights for everybody which sparked a little debate, ‘Were Emmeline Pankhurst’s actions appropriate?’. Lots of the children felt that violence wasn’t the correct behaviour. After that, the children made their own ‘equal rights’ sashes and took part in a peaceful protest around school.
