History Day

Years 1 and 2 have enjoyed a lovely morning taking part in a variety of activities linked to our study of the  famous person 'Florence Nightingale'.  Some of the children chose to:

make a red cross medal, follow the recipe for Crimean lemonade taken from an 1861 recipe cookbook, make a 3D rat from different materials, draw a portrait of Florence, take part in dance activities using props including sheets and brushes, use their ICT skills to research additional facts about Florence, role play the experience of nurses and soldiers from that time period and write a diary entry from the hospital reflecting on life at that time.
