Florence Nightingale

On Friday 29th September we were visited by 'That History Bloke' and the famous Florence Nightingale. 

We have been learning lots about Florence and all of the incredible work that she did, but their visit really helped us to understand more. 

'That History Bloke' showed us lots of artefacts from the Victorian Times and he shared lots of stories about what life would have been like for the soldiers in the Crimean War, and for Florence Nightingale.
