Author Kate Pankhurst presents to Junior and Infant School pupils

It is not every day you meet a relative of Emmeline Pankhurst, and this week our Junior Girls’ did! 

Kate Pankhurst is the inspirational author of ‘Fantastically Great Women Who Changed The World’, ‘Great Women Who Changed History’ and more. 

Year 4 have used her books as part of their studies at the start of the year learning about great women and their journeys. 

Kate presented the children with her ideas and actively involved them in her presentation, dressing them up as the famous women she writes about in her books. 

We invited the Year 3 and Year 4 boys to join us as Year 4 have also studied her book and they were equally enthralled. 

The message was loud and clear, ‘You can be anything you want to be’, determination and resilience of character, all of which encompass our school aims. 

To finish off the afternoon signed copies of her books were enthusiastically purchased and the children went home motivated to conquer the world!
