Year 1 caught the train to Blackfriars to visit the Florence Nightingale Museum today as part of their school topic. As they walked along the Embankment, they also managed to look at the famous landmarks, such as Big Ben and the London Eye. When they reached the museum, they were met by ‘Florence Nightingale’ who told the children all about her life and carried out some role play (with the help of some of our pupils) of important events that took place. The children were then split into groups to look round the museum and learned all about Florence Nightingale’s important work and the legacy she left.
Thank you to all our helpers, Mrs Doherty, Mrs Gudmundsdottir, Miss Moore and Mrs Carberry who joined Mrs Wright and Miss Tyler to accompany the children to the museum.
