Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole Stunning Start!
Date: 22nd Apr 2021 @ 2:15pm
To begin our exciting new theme, the children took part in a theatre performance! They were assigned different parts and short scripts and together we acted out the story of Florence Nightingale. We used ‘Teacher in Role’ and I acted out the part of Florence herself. The children then contributed as characters such as: Florence's mother and father, other nurses and Queen Victoria. Other children acted as stage managers and crew and they helped bring the story together. The children took their seats in the audience and as the show played out they came up on stage to show off their acting skills. We had lots of fun learning about Florence and bringing her true story to life. It has set such a wonderful tone to our theme of Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole.
