Rumble Museum Women's Suffrage Course

This term all Year Eight students at Cheney School are studying an exciting new module designed around the original and replica artefacts from the Rumble Museum's Suffrage Collection in History lessons.

Each lesson explores a different aspect of the campaign for women's votes through artefacts and primary source material, incorporating object handling alongside a range of writing and activity tasks. These lessons will be made available on our Women's Suffrage Season Blog which will be updated every week with a full write-up of the lessons, links to further information and regular features such as quiz questions.

An accompanying booklet has been produced to support the lessons: “A Story of Women's Suffrage”. Each chapter of this will be posted on the blog as the module continues. The book is narrated by suffragette Annie Kenney, who is also featured in our new mural in the Lane Building.

The full booklet can be found by clicking on the image below. We are making this booklet freely available for all to download, but would be grateful for donations to help cover the costs of producing it, which can be made online here.
