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.

Year 5 Trip to Tatton Park 5.4.2017

Today Year 5 went on a trip to Tatton Park / Tatton Dale Home Farm. They were treat like evacuees from start to finish! They all had the chance to experience what life was like for an evacuee on the farm. They learnt about the farm animals and how to milk a cow. They looked inside the house they may have lived in as well as looking at the stables and the equipment used in the land army. They were all  very surprised when the air-raid siren went off at the end of the day too!

The staff there commented on how wonderful the children behaved and that they were a credit to the school. Well done Year 5! Hope you had a great day and learnt lots. I certainly did.

Tell me your favourite part or something you learnt.
