Year 1 learn about Florence Nightingale

Today (27.9.2016) in our history lesson we acted out a hospital scene from the Crimean War.

We dressed up as Florence Nightingale, nurses and wounded soldiers. We learnt that Florence was also known as ‘the Lady with the lamp’ and that she made the soldiers feel better by giving them medicine and keeping the hospital clean. She was a fascinating and important person!
