Year 2 were very lucky on Monday to welcome Richard ‘that history bloke’ into class. Richard began to tell the children about Florence Nightingale. Luckily Richard’s time machine worked and Florence was able to come into class to see the children! Florence was very surprised to see girls at school!
Floren explained about all the jobs she had to do at the hospital in Scutari; like folding sheets, cleaning the floors, fixing windows, bandaging the soldiers and then most importantly of all caring for the soldiers as she walked through the wards with her lamp which gave her the special name ‘the lady with the lamp’.
