We looked at the life of Emily Davison who was local to Morpeth. We discovered some facts about her early life including the fact that she studied at Oxford University. We learnt that she joined the Suffragette movement. We found out lots of information about the Suffragettes and looked at a photo mosaic of Emmeline Pankhurst, their leader. We used Emily Davison’s photo, printed in purple, to make collage of a violet in purple, white and green (the Suffragette colours). We also designed posters and used Philosophy for Children to talk about some of the issues raised from studying her life story.
