This week the girls learned about Florence Nightingale- a woman who changed the way in which hospitals are run today. Florence was born in Britain in the 18th century. Her parents were very wealthy and when they heard that Florence wished to be a nurse they were very unhappy as hospitals back then were dark and desolate places riddled with disease. Despite this, Florence went to Germany to train as a nurse and went on to serve during the Crimean War. Here she made the war hospitals more efficient and helped wounded soldiers. She became known as the 'Lady of the Lamp' as she constantly checked on her patients during the night. The girls really loved Florence's story and created these wonderful storyboards recalling her life.
