In 1883, Florence Nightingale was awarded the Royal Red Cross by Queen Victoria. In 1907, she became the first woman to be awarded the Order of Merit. In 1908, she was given the Honorary Freedom of the City of London. Mary Seacole did not receive any recognition in her life time.
Imagine that you are Queen Victoria and you want to award Florence Nightingale or Mary Seacole with a specially designed medal for their significant work in nursing during the Crimea War.
What would your design look like?
What words would you include?
What important features, important to the individual person, would you include?
Children to design their medal. This can be a drawing or they can make their own medal using materials of their choice.
Below is a copy of the medal awarded to Florence Nightingale by Queen Victoria as inspiration.
This term we would love the children to create their own Nativity scene. This links with our RE - Incarnation as well as our Nativity performance. The children can be as creative as they want. Below you will see a few examples.
These are due in by Monday 11th December 2023
This term in Science, we are learning all about animals and their habitats. We will be thinking about why a habitat is suitable for the organisms that live there and what it provides for them to enable them to survive there. We would like you to choose a habitat and make a diorama (small scene) in a shoebox to show that habitat and the animals who live there. You could label it or write a fact card to go alongside it too, if you like! Here are some examples below to give you ideas:

We look forward to seeing your dioramas!
DUE DATE: MONDAY 16TH OCTOBER
There will be no term 5 big project as we would like the children to continue to prepare for this term's assessments. Please continue to practise Times Table Rock Stars and let your teacher know if you would like any additional assessment sheets.
To enhance and consolidate our learning this term we would like the children to research the life of Florence Nightgale's contemporary Mary Seacole. We would like them to present their research in a media of their choosing. In the past we have had posters, pamphlets, paintings, powerpoint presentations and videos. Be creative! The deadline for their research is Monday 27th March which will give us time to showcase their work to the rest of the year group.

This term we have a very exciting project where the children will be creating their own Tudor building. This links in with this term's Great Fire of London topic. Although the Great Fire of London was in the Stuart era most of the buildings in London were made in what we would recognise as the traditional Tudor style. Once these have been completed we will recreate the Great Fire culminating in a 'Great Burn' in the school grounds.
Deadline for the project is Monday 30th January.
