We would like you to learn all about another very important nurse this week.
Her name was Mary Seacole and she was a nurse at the same time as Florence Nightingale. She faced a lot of discrimination because of the colour of her skin and she made a huge difference in nursing.
These websites all have more information about Mary:
You could also watch these videos to learn more about Mary:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/history-ks2-mary-seacole-ep1/z72prj6 (this is the first in a series of 3 episodes, scroll to the bottom of the page to find episodes 2 and 3)
There is also a PowerPoint and fact sheets on this webpage, all about Mary Seacole's life.
Finally, Miss Whitney has recorded herself reading a book about Mary Seacole. The link to listen to this is at the bottom of this page. Technical issues- keep checking back to see whether it's working!
Any of these sources will help you learn about Mary Seacole so that you can make your poster or fact sheet.
