St Michael and All Angels Primary School

About This School

In year 5 we have been learning all about the Suffragettes and have celebrated the100 year anniversary since the law was passed for women to be able to vote. After a recent visit to an art gallery, where the children saw some examples of Propaganda we decided to research Propaganda posters. The children have used this inspiration and their knowledge of the Suffragettes to design their own posters to share their views on the importance of women having the vote. The children worked independently to pick their slogans and design images which they thought would be eye catching and grab the attention of anyone who saw them. As a group the children decided to use poster paints to try to make their posters similar to the Propaganda posters they had seen on their gallery visit.
