Women in History Day

Posted: 5th February 2020


On Women in History Day Foundation 1 celebrated the life of Florence Nightingale. She was born in Florence, Italy in 1820. Florence is famous for changing nursing from untrained to a highly skilled profession.

After listening to a story about the life of Florence Nightingale the children completed a colouring and a sticking picture highlighting the way she improved nursing. In the afternoon we carried out role-play where a multitude of Florence’s helped a lot of very sick patients. There were lots of bandages, plasters and calls of “Florence, come and help me please.”
