This workshop was absolutely excellent, I couldn’t recommend it enough. The actor brought the story of the suffragettes to life in a way which was immersive and fun, but also had really clear learning outcomes. Our students ended up using the call and response (oh dear, what could the matter be…) and the deeds not words chant in their final performance on the Friday. It was clear that the messages had really sunk in and had a profound effect on the children. The actor was so energetic and delivered every section so smoothly. She also did a great job of navigating anachronistic or silly answers from students while staying in character. Thank you so much!
