Class 2 Home learning – Monday 29th June 2020

Good morning Class 2. Welcome to a new week of home learning. I have enjoyed catching up with your parents on the telephone about what you have been up to with your activities at home. I am missing you lots and I know you will have grown so much taller from the last time I saw you.  I hope you had a lovely weekend with your families. Here are your activities for home learning today.  Please send your photos of your learning and anything else you have been up to (it would be great to share all the wonderful things you have been doing) on class.twoteacher@taw.org.uk

History – Who was Mary Seacole?

 

Follow the link https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zg7n2v4 and read about the life of Mary Seacole who lived more than 150 years ago and had an adventurous life travelling across many lands to run businesses and help people in need. During the Crimean War, Mary travelled to care for wounded and sick soldiers. Who else do you know helped soldiers in the Crimean War?

Create a fact file about the life and works of Mary Seacole. Think about the work that she did and compare it the work of Florence Nightingale. Who do you think made the biggest impact on nursing at that time? What evidence can you give for your thinking?

Have a super day with your home learning. Remember to email work and all your other activities to class.twoteacher@taw.org.uk
