Black History Day

Year Three learned about Mary Seacole as part of Black History day.  Using pictures of Mary Seacole, the children worked with their partners and took part in a rally robin activity to name some professions that they thought Mary Seacole might have belonged to.

Buraidah thought she might have been a doctor, Boshra thought she might have been a president and Adam thought she might have been a shop keeper.

After this, the children read information about Mary Seacole and worked out how long ago she must have lived when looking at dates. The children then fit important moments in her life onto a timeline.
