Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole

This term we have been learning about Mary Seacole and Florence Nightingale in our History lessons.

The children have learnt some key facts about how these amazing nurses helped injured soldiers in the Crimean war, and how their work changed nursing forever!

They have looked at old pictures and some photos to identify how poor the conditions were for the soldiers. They’ve dressed up and practiced being nurses themselves and we are looking forward to meeting a doctor next week to learn more about how to help protect current patients from further illness and infection.

Here are just a few samples of our work, our collaborative work and us pretending to be nurses!
