Project Description

Travel back in time to the 1850’s with Mary Seacole, to both remember and explore her life and work. Listen to her story and experience life as a nurse during the Crimean war.

During this workshop the children will:

  • Explore the Victorian era and Mary’s place within it
  • Through improvisation, travel to the Crimea and Mary’s Hotel for the wounded
  • With the use of role play, become a soldier or nurse working during the Crimea
  • Perform a poem about Mary’s life with song, action, sound and movement
  • Create a time line to place Mary Seacole firmly within a historical time frame

All staff and children fully enjoyed each workshop. Children left feeling they had met Mary. Teachers were impressed with behaviour management skills and how engaged she kept the children. It was fast paced.
