A Surprise Visitor

Year one had a lovely surprise today when ‘Florence Nightingale’ visited their class. The children had lots of questions to ask Florence about her life and work. She told them all about her early life and how she helped make things better for people who were sick. They heard about her journey to the hospital in Scutari and how she looked after injured soldiers during the Crimean War. They heard about the conditions in the hospital, and the improvements she made. Florence is famous for carrying a lamp which she used to check on the soldiers at night.
