Stepping into the shoes of a protestor at the Peterloo Massacre

Today we imagined what it would have been like to be a working class person in 1819, who decided to stand up for their rights. We made banners and protested around the playground and pretended to attend the meeting in St Peters Field.

What happened next in the Peterloo Massacre?

    If we were those people we would be protesting so we could get a right to vote.

    It was really fun to create banners and props to reorganise the Peterloo massacre ! Although, I do feel really sorry for all the people who were injured and killed in the actual scene. By Neave Curtis 5sk
