Black History Month

Black History Month


This Black  History Month we learnt about Mary Seacole.


Mary Seacole was a nurse from Jamaica who wanted to help during the Crimean war. She used her own money to help these soldiers and was known to them as 'Mother Seacole'.


The children described her as 'Brave', 'Courageous', 'Adventurous', 'Determined' after hearing about her life.
