Real history alive presents 'The chronicles of Florence Nightingale'.
Florence visits your very own school to present an interactive, informative, voyage into the world of one the most famous and influential women in British history!
The visit begins with an assembly (for your class or the whole school if required!) as we join Florence in a war-torn army hospital during the Crimean war. Sounds of Gun fire echo in the distance as Florence tells the story of her childhood and the 'calling' which led her to become the most famous pioneer of modern medicine in British history.
Hear how she fought family disapproval and social pressure to travel to Scutari and treat the allied army suffering from disease and infection, introducing many of the nursing skills we still use to this day.
After the presentation, Florence takes a group of children (up to 35 per class) to train them in Victorian medical techniques and hygiene,
we then open the interactive 'school hospital' where the children are encouraged to treat the ill!
Florence arrives at 9am and leaves at lunchtime, allowing the children to complete their training journal in the afternoon.
Thankyou and Florence hopes to meet you soon for a fabulous trip back to the 19th Century!
