Here is some of our work so far on Important People!
We started by looking at roles in our community- we had lots of different ideas about which was the most important role and why!
Next we learned about Florence Nightingale and created a timeline of her life. Some of us also practiced our reading and role play with a Florence Nightingale poem.
We compared Florence Nightingale to Mary Seacole and found lots of differences and a few similarities! We then discussed if we could have a statue at our school whether it should be Florence or Mary and why- fantastic reasons Year 1!
One of your homework tasks is to make an information page about an important person from History- I cannot wait to see your ideas!
