History

In December we went to the Thackray Medical Museum to explore the horrors of wartime hospitals before Florence Nightingale.

There were lots of dirty bandages covered in blood, old food, smelly sweaty socks, disgusting smells and even an infectious rat!! 

 

We decided to join Florence Nightingale on an exciting journey to the Crimea. She needed lots of strong porters and kind, caring nurses.... 

 

We went to a Scutari hospital ward and helped Florence Nightingale to improve the conditions. We even looked after a poor wounded soldier!!

As part of our topic 'Where do I live?' we wrote our own letters and posted them to our home address. We could not wait for our letters to arrive!
