4th June 1913

Today I was part of a local primary school's centenary celebrations. An exciting day of celebration, fun and learning what life was like in 1913.

In preparation I discovered that today also marks the very day suffragette Emily Davison stepped in front of the King's horse tragically dying on the 8th of June 1913.



We dressed in costumes with Emily Davison very much in our thoughts. 

It was an important connection for the children to think about our responsibility to use our vote and, of course, to reflect on the idea of 'deeds not words'. You may know I am a big fan of words but sometimes you do just have to do.
