Florence Nightingale
Meet our costumed actress in the role of Florence Nightingale

  Using a selection of Victorian artefacts, Miss Nightingale will tell the children about her early life, her dreams of becoming a nurse and then take them back in time to experience life as it was for her in Scutari.

  

The children, dressed as nurses, soldiers and doctors, will have fun in role, whilst learning about the health hazards of Victorian life, the Crimean war and the nursing methods pioneered by Miss Nightingale.

““We were so impressed with the Florence Nightingale workshop. The actress was very good at keeping the children involved in such brilliant learning. The workshop catered for the different learning styles. There were visual elements as well as practical parts which allowed the children to have a hands-on experience. It was a superb introductory session in our history topic as it got the children interested and focused on their learning. Many thanks”
Romina Gonnella, Marion Vian Primary School, Bromley.

St Paul's Primary School, Kings Langley.
