Year 1 have made an exciting discovery and were given a time capsule found by the builders working in the Key Stage 1 playground. Inside a metal box we found some bandages, old photographs, a diary extract, a lamp and a sash from Scutari Hospital. We worked out that the box must have belonged to Florence Nightingale and have been using the diary extract to find out about what life was like working in hospital during the Crimean War. In history we have been sharing what we already know about 'The Lady with the Lamp' and have been talking about what we would like to find out throughout the topic. Our class role plays have been transformed into hospitals and we are having great fun playing doctors and poorly patients! Click on the picture below for a link to the BBC Schools website with information all about Florence Nightingale. There's also a fun game you can play, helping Florence to look after the poorly soldiers.
