Year 6 Breaking Chains

Year 6 have linked their 'Breaking Chains' History topic with English this week and have been constructing their own persuasive arguments for why women should have the vote.

They have been looking at historical evidence to find out more about how different viewpoints were represented a hundred years ago when women fought to be able to vote, and looked for persuasive techniques in posters as well as bias in news articles. 

They have enjoyed expressing their opinions in lively debates, developed confidence giving speeches and are now preparing to write a powerfully persuasive letter to the Prime Minister!
