Florence Nightingale

Delve Into History now offers a half day Florence Nightingale workshop for KS1 children. Explore the life of Florence Nightingale through artefact handling and costume.

Through role-play children will imagine what it was like to be a nurse in The Crimean War. They will nurse the sick and wounded and keep Scutari hospital clean.

The class will look at what Florence Nightingale wore and the uniform of a soldier, and learn about how paths of these two people crossed.

The class will look at the medicines and medical instruments available to doctors during The Crimean War and have the opportunity to sketch them.
