This week in Topic we have been learning about Florence Nightingale. Who was Florence Nightingale?
“Florence was a famous nurse who helped soldiers in the Crimean war. Florence was born in Italy but then moved to England. Since she was little she loved books and to learn. When she was older she travelled from England, to France and Scutari to get to the Crimea. She saved soldiers from dirty, infected wounds and cleaned the hospital.”- 2 Red class explanation
We have done at lot of work on Florence’s life and have been ordering events in chronological order. We were timed to see how quick we could sort and order these events!
Hamza produced an amazing piece of work all about Florence’s astonishing work!
Florence Nightingale was born in 1820 . Florence was called the lady of the lamp because she held a lamp to see where she was going when visiting the soldiers. All the nurses cleaned and scrubbed the floors. Florence stayed with all the soldiers until they were gone because the soldiers needed her to care and clean, so the maggots can’t go in their bodies. Florence was a good lady and a great nurse as she helped the soldiers and changed the hospital. Florence returned to England as a heroine, as she went to Turkey to care for the wounded soldiers. Florence became ill and died on the 13th August 1910.
