What an exciting week in Year 1! We were so lucky to receive a very special visit from Florence Nightingale herself! She told us all about her life, why she became a nurse and her experiences of war. She even told us about her meeting with Mary Seacole, the other special nurse we have been studying in class. 

We have been investigating our senses in Year 1 through a range of different games and activities. We even went on a senses walk around the playground. Make sure you ask me what I know about my five senses! 

We are becoming expert nurses! Edith Cavell was a special nurse because she did not let war stop her from believing in what was right. She helped both English and German soldiers during World War 1, even hiding them to get them to safety. We have been acting out events from her life to help us understand the choices she made.
