New EYFS Starters 2020/21

Florence Nightingale

Year one had a fantastic time when we had a visit from Florence Nightingale! We learnt about how she grew up in a rich family and her parents didn’t want her to become a nurse. Florence was determined to do something with her life and help other people so she trained as a nurse anyway. 


We all took a train and boat ride with Florence, pretending to be her group of nurses. We arrived in Scutari and cleaned the hospital with soap, scrubbing brushes and cloths. The soldiers were given fresh sheets, bandaged up and started to heal.


When we had finished our good work in Scutari we travelled back to England. We learnt that Florence set up the first nurses school in London, which changed hospitals forever.
