Welcome to the amazing world of Florence Nightingale, the Pioneer of modern Nursing.
Florence will visit your primary school along with her good friend, Sidney Herbert, the Victorian minister for War.
The half day Experience begins with a 30 minute interactive presentation, charting the life and accomplishments of this amazing woman known as 'the lady with the lamp' before the children become part of History itself by recreating Scutari hospital in Turkey where the wounded British soldiers were taken to recover during the Crimean war in 1854. We bring dress up for up to 35 children per workshop and teachers will be offered fabulous photo opportunities for their evidence.
Florence and Sidney also bring several Victorian artefacts which were used in Victorian times.
The children are invited to examine and handle the artefacts and compare them to equivalent items from today.
The Florence experience is Curriculum based and guaranteed to hook the children into this fabulous topic which is such an important part of British history.
We also many other topics including:
Great fire of London
Under the Sea
