Can ordinary people change the world?
Our Spring Creative topic this year circulates around two significant nurses that have shaped modern nursing: Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole.
During our lessons, we will research both Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole, comparing their lives and legacy. We are going to be creating our own timelines, highlighting important events for both women and how their determination and heroinism have shaped nursing today. Here are a few questions from the children about what they want to find out about nursing in the past:
"Where were the hospital beds?"
"Why did Florence become a nurse?"
"Did nurses wear uniforms?"
"Did Mary and Florence work together?"
"Where is Mary from?"
Examples of wonderful work!
