History Workshop 06/01/2022
Today, we welcomed Southwest Heritage in to kick start our History learning. We learned all about Florence Nightingal and Mary Seacole which will help up with this terms learning. We heard how Florence and Mary were significant individuals from the past who are remembered for helping soldiers in and after the Crimean war. The children explored and compared the lives of both ladies using items from their suitcases. They were rather impressed that Mary Seacole made medicine out of herbs to help treat them. The children also role played as either nurses or soliders showing how Florence or Mary may have acted. We also discussed how hospital were very different and rather dirty places. The children were not impressed that soliders were given mouldy food to eat!
