Florence Nightingale workshop

Year 2 had a very special visitor come into school for the day. She came from the Florence Nightingale museum.

During her visit, we learnt about her life and how she revolutionised nursing and hygiene.

We acted as nursed and soldiers to experience hospitals in the Crimean War ourselves.

In English, we have been immersing ourselves in the life and achievements of Mary Seacole, who was also a nurse during the Crimean War. We learnt that she was treated unfairly but did not less this stop her sailing to Turkey, with her own money, to set up the British Hotel hospital.
