Year 2 visit to The Florence Nightingale Museum
Year 2 visited to The Florence Nightingale Museum in London as enrichment for their topic 'Inspirational Women'. Our workshop session at the museum began with a performance by the museum's own 'Florence Nightingale' describing her life and work. We discovered the story of the 'The Lady with the Lamp', why Florence Nightingale went to the Crimea, how she improved conditions for the soldiers and nurses and what happened as a result of her work. We also enjoyed exploring the museum, where we discovered artefacts from Florence's life and had fun dressing up as nurses and soldiers!
