Wow Year 2 what a performance!

At the end of our work about the Human Body this half term we have spent a week researching the life of the nurse, Florence Nightingale, focussing specifically on the horrors of the Crimean War. The children learnt how the work of Florence and many others like her changed the way nursing was perceived and the way that cleanliness and hygiene in hospitals was gradually improved in Victorian times.

This week's work was an outcome of the 2014 National Curriculum requirements in History, Science, Geography and English. The week culminated in a number of re-enactments of the arrival of Florence and a team of 38 nurses at the military hospital near Scutari after a harrowing journey to The Crimea from England by ship. The conditions that greeted Florence upon their arrival were filthy and disgusting.... take a look at the dramatic scenes as re-enacted by the children in Year 2.
