Year 2 enjoyed a fabulous day of learning about Florence Nightingale with the help of parents, grandparents and carers of children in Year 2. The children dressed up as nurses, soldiers from the Crimean war, Florence Nightingale and other characters from the Victorian era. They learnt surgery skills, the development of nursing, hospital hygiene (including real maggots!), first aid skills and cooked and ate broth. The children also made three collages of Florence Nightingale through the ages from a child to an older woman and went home with their wonderful homemade Florence Nightingale lamp. They interviewed our own Florence Nightingale and accompanied her inspecting the work in the surgery and the skills of the trainee nurses. A large amount of children left school with various bandages still attached to their limbs! A huge thank you to our wonderful volunteers, the parents who helped with their children’s outfits and the Year 2 staff for their hard work.ork.
