Good morning Otters! I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend. I know it must be strange staying at home and not coming into school. I am missing you all. I’ll continue to put work on the blog for you each day like I did last week. It’s been great hearing from some of you last week, I’ve really enjoyed reading your comments and hearing all about how you’re getting on. There’s a competition this week for the class who puts the most comments on the blog so do try and leave me comments this week to see if our class can win. Look for the ‘Leave a Reply’ box at the end of the blog and just type in your comment or question. You will need to type in your email address before it gets sent to me.

Can I write an information page about Mary Seacole?

Yesterday your task was to make a plan for an information page about Mary Seacole. Today I want you to use your plan to write an information page about her. Think back to when we wrote one about Florence Nightingale and set it out in the same way – with a heading and sub-headings. Look at my example to help you. Make your writing intesting by using conjunctions (joining words) to extend your sentences and try to include lots of detail, including expanded noun phrases.

The Life of Mary Seacole

Mary’s Childhood

Mary was born in 1805 in Kingston, Jamaica. She lived with her Jamaican mum and her dad who was a Scottish soldier. Her mum was a doctress and when Mary was only 12 she helped her mum look after sick people and injured soldiers. Mary’s Mum made medicines out of herbs and Mary learnt how to do this by watching her make them.

The Crimean War

P 4 C

Think about the question above and discuss this with your family at home. Write your ideas in your blue book and share your ideas on the blog.

I look forward to hearing what you think.
