Pupil Voice!


Can you tell me something about your history learning this term?


“About Rosa Parks and Florence Nightingale- she cleaned the hospital!”

“Mary Anning discovered that some fossils had ink in so this told her that some creatures from long ago could squirt ink.”

“Rosa Parks was born 4th February 1913. She died on 2nd October 2005.”


What does significant mean? Why were Rosa Parks/ Mary Anning/ Florence Nightingale significant?


“Florence Nightingale made the hospitals all clean. Before they were dirty but now they’re clean.”

“Significant means they changed the world. Mary changed how scientists thought about women.”

“It means you did something important. Rosa changed life for black people on the busses.”



How were Rosa Parks/ Mary Anning/ Florence Nightingale similar? How were they different?


“They are both superheroes. They both got a medal.”

“They both saved the world. They're different because Rosa was an ordinary person who did something special. Mary already had a special talent.”

“They were both treated unfairly. They were different because they changed different things.”


How can we learn about people from the past?


“You could look at fossils and things in the ground. You could read things that people have written.”

“Dig up bones! Or we could watch films and look at photos.”
