Black History Week
As a natural extension to our work on historical characters through the ages, it seemed quite fitting to pick a character that was almost forgotten and lost in time. Mary Seacole was a brave Jamaican nurse who cared for sick and wounded soldiers in the Crimean war. We had already studied Florence Nightingale as part of our Time Tunnel topic, so this was a great opportunity to compare the lives of these two ladies. Read our class poem to find out more about the life of Mary Seacole.
Mary Seacole – not forgotten
Our Acrostic Class poem.
Mother of healing.
Always helping the wounded.
Rewarded medals for your bravery.
You boldly helped, even under fire.
Scottish soldier for a father.
Everyone knew you were mixed race.
Around the world you went to help.
Colour of your skin brown,
Oh! Such a shame the war office didn't want you.
Living your life a heroine.
Everyone forgot you but you are now remembered.
