Join us on our learning adventures.

Florence Nightingale, Fitness and Being Healthy

Friday 20th September | 3 comments

Earlier this week, a mysterious suitcase arrived in our class. The children had to look at the objects and artefacts contained within the suitcase and work out who the case belonged to. After we realised that it belonged to Florence Nightingale, we had to piece together the evidence to try and tell her story.

Yesterday we had a lovely time 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!

Here are some pictures:

In maths we have continued our work on place value looking at comparing and ordering numbers. Can you explain how to use the symbols < > = to an adult?

In PSHCE, we have continued our work on ‘Being Healthy’ by learning about why exercise is important and the benefits that exercising brings. We had a go at performing some different types of exercises and seeing how many we could perform in one minute. We thought about the changes in our bodies and how exercising made us feel.
