Florence Nightingale Visit

On 4th May, Form 2 were lucky enough to meet a costumed actress in the role of Florence Nightingale, from teach-it-through-drama.

Using a selection of Victorian artefacts, Miss Nightingale told the children about her early life, her dreams of becoming a nurse and then took them back in time to experience life as it was for her in Scutari.

The children, dressed as nurses, soldiers and doctors, had fun in role, whilst learning about the health hazards of Victorian life, the Crimean war and the nursing methods pioneered by Miss Nightingale.
