Freshwater Theatre

Year 2 welcomed an important lady from the nineteenth century, Florence Nightingale. Miss Nightingale told Year 2 about her life, her determination to become a nurse and her experiences in the Crimea. We went back in time and travelled on trains and boats to reach the hospital where Florence Nightingale put her nursing  into practice. We were shocked to hear about the way wounded soldiers were treated before Florence Nightingale arrived. We experienced scrubbing floors, emptying chamber pots, rolling bandages and putting them on soldiers wounds. It was very interesting. Thank you very much to Florence Nightingale for coming to see us.
