Welcome To Sapphire Class!
Sapphire class have been learning about Mary Seacole. We have looked at how to make some of her traditional medicines including ginger beer. We thought that Mary Seacole’s ginger beer was very spicy!!
Mary Seacole was a very busy lady, so the children of Sapphire class decided to get into their time machine and travel back to Mary Seacole’s time.
We had to help her cure 3 soldiers who all had different problems, choosing and making the correct medicine to cure them. We even had to find and collect the correct plants from the schools garden.
We also had to clean and change the dirty bedding ready for the next patient and bandage each other, making sure the bandages didn’t fall off when we stood up!
It was a very tiring day and by the end of it we all understood a little bit more how hard it was for Mary Seacole all those years ago in Jamaia.
