On Monday 1st April Year 2 went on an exciting school trip to the Florence Nightingale Museum in London. It was great way to launch their new History topic all about Florence and other nurturing nurses. During the visit the children had the opportunity to meet Florence herself, who told them all about her life, family and her struggle to become a nurse. The children then took part in a number of activities which helped them understand the impact Florence had on nursing and how she helped to transform the hospitals during the Crimean War. There were opportunities for dressing up, role play and to gather lots of information to use back in class.
The trip was enjoyed by all and the children are looking forward to learning more about Florence after Easter.
