Our enquiry question:

What does it mean to be healthy?


This term the children will be looking back in time to the lives of Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole to discover what differences their work made to the health and well being of those they cared for. 

This history rich topic will highlight the differences between hospitals now and those from the time of the Crimean war.


Art and Design


The outcome for this term's learning is to create portraits of Mary Seacole.

To do this we will explore how to draw the human face – thinking about the location of main features and know that lines can be used to add expression.
