Year 2: A Visit from Florence Nightingale

To support their History topic, Year 2 had a visit from Florence Nightingale. They were able to use the knowledge and skills that they had learnt throughout the half term in a practical, fun and engaging context. Children took part in a practical workshop where they could re-enact Florence's journey to Scutari, explore the conditions of the hospital and become a part of Florence's team of nurses by scrubbing the floors, chasing out the rats and bandaging wounded soldiers. Taking in part in the wonderful workshop helped Year 2 strengthen their understanding of this fascinating historical figure.
