This term we should be learning about ‘Important Nurses’. Work includes Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole and Edith Cavell. This is always extremely popular with Year 2 and the learn so much about the nurses but also about asking and answering their own questions. We shall send out a few lessons each week to build upon the current work.
We hope you enjoyed the first few lessons on the Crimean War and learnt some new facts. Take a look at this video and the short ordering activity under it.
BBC bitesize – Who was Florence Nightingale? https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zns9nrd/articles/znsct39
Now look at the two photographs. How many differences can you spot between the before photograph and after Florence Nightingale had made changes to hospital wards? (Gross facts – in the first picture, the floors were never washed, the sheets were barely changed and there were often rats running around!)
(Extra clue, check the windows – why would they be different in the second picture?)
