During Ash Classes Capital and Culture lesson today, the children were being ‘Historians’ and using primary sources to find out about Florence Nightingale. Some key facts that the children discovered about Florence Nightingale were:
Florence was born in 1820 in a big city in Italy. It’s called Florence and that’s how she got her name.
She went to the Crimean War to nurse wounded soldiers.
She became known as ‘The Lady with the Lamp’.
Florence Nightingale is remembered for showing people that nursing was a very important job.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the research process and working together as a team to find out as many facts as possible. We took some pictures of the lesson, which you can see by clicking on the thumbnails below.
