"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"

Florence Nightingale Visit

Yesterday afternoon Year 2 took part in an activity session to gain an understanding of the life and work of Florence Nightingale, why it is important that we remember her and how the lives of men and women were different in her time.


The children took part in a variety of hands-on activities, including bandaging limbs, writing with a quill pen and ink, looking at Florence's journeys on a map, a quiz, recounting episodes of her life with pictures and packing gift boxes for the troops in the Crimea.
