Remembrance Day Year 6 & Reception

Last week, Year 6 and Reception class worked together to produce a fantastic Remembrance Day display to celebrate 100 years since the end of WW1.

The children in both classes worked together to produce lots of poppies using paint, tissue paper, crayons and felt tips. We then joined them altogether on the silhouette of a soldier.

Year 2 also kindly contributed their poppies in the shape of 100.

Well done to everyone involved. I am so proud of this amazing tribute.

Florence Nightingale visits Year 2

Year  2 had a visit from a very significant person called “Florence Nightingale”.

She came to tell the children about her life as a nurse and her travels to Scutari in Turkey where she nursed soldiers who were injured in the Crimean war. When she arrived there she found that the hospital was very dirty, bandages were re-used, bed sheets were filthy and rats were running around everywhere. So she and her nurses and porters decided to tidy it all up and get clean bandages and sheets. They also got fresh food and clean water. All these things helped the soldiers to get better. At night she checked on the soldiers using her lamp to light the way. We still use Florence Nightingale’s methods today and that is why she is a “significant person” and is known as “The Lady of the Lamp”.

Kick-boxing

As part of our Future Learning Partnership, four children from year two had a go at some kick-boxing today. They went up to BBEC and did lots of different warm up activities, learnt lots of different kicks, and then put some of the moves that they had learnt into combinations. Here are some pictures from the afternoon:

Florence Nightingale visits Year 2

Year 2 have been finding out about significant people from the past. As part of their research, they have been looking at Florence Nightingale. Luckily, she was able to visit us in school and share her achievements and what life was really like during her lifetime.

 

Florence brought in some items for us to touch and see. There was also some smells so that we could really imagine what it was like at the hospital in Scutari.

We also did some drama. The children could choose whether to be porters or nurses.

They had to:

  • Travel to Scutari on a boat for 2 weeks
  • Clean the hospital at Scutari
  • Remove all dirty bandages and bedding
  • Use clean clothes and clean sheets
  • Get rid of all the rats
  • Make sure that any injured soldiers had clean bandages
  • Give the soldiers healthy food to eat
  • Empty bed pans!!!

 

Florence Nightingale was significant because she changed how people were looked after when they were ill. Her changes to nursing are still used today. She was known as the “Lady of the Lamp” because at night time she would go and check on the soldiers with a small lamp in her hand.

Year 2 really enjoyed their visit from Florence Nightingale.
