2La’s visit to Thackray Medical Museum
Friday 21st September | 4 comments
Yesterday we had a lovely time at the medical museum, learning all about Florence Nightingale. The children took part in a workshop where they learned all about Florence’s life and work. They enjoyed a number of activities including sorting objects into those that would be found in the dirty hospital before Florence arrived, and those that would be found in a clean hospital. They also used a timeline to find out about things that Florence would have known about and things that she wouldn’t; this really helped them to understand chronology. They loved dressing up as porters and nurses and were very enthusiastic about cleaning Scutari hospital and looking after the wounded soldiers! We spend the rest of the day exploring the galleries, learning more about being healthy. A big thank you to our parent helpers.
Here are some photos of our day:
