Summer Term


We celebrated International Nurses Day on Wednesday 12th May. Do you know why International Nurses Day is celebrated on this date each year? It’s because it is Florence Nightingale’s birthday. Florence Nightingale is probably the most famous nurse in history. She changed hospitals for the better. 
As part of our theme day, we made lanterns (as Florence was known as the “Lady with the Lamp”), we drew portraits of Florence and we had a demonstration of how to bandage wounds. We had a go at bandaging each other.
