Do all heroes wear capes?
History Focus: Significant Individuals in the 19th & 20th Century
Throughout history, there are tales of heroes who have helped people through times of adversity. In 2020, we have never been more grateful for our NHS heroes and the Key Workers in the UK.
This project first uncovers the lives and achievements of heroic nurses in the Crimean War - Mary Seacole and Florence Nightingale. We then go on to consider our modern day heroes, nationally and locally, who have helped keep us safe during the pandemic of 2020.
The children will then be finding ways to thank our local heroes, by celebrating their stories of bravery and courage to help others, ensuring that their stories are told in the history books - just like Florence and Mary's.
