Investigating the influence of Florence Nightingale’s work

Class 2 are enjoying learning about a significant person in history. Their knowledge of her life and work is fantastic and they have been able to write diaries, instructions, biographies and recounts. This week, we investigated how Florence Nightingale improved hygiene in hospitals through keeping clean and ensuring hands were clean. To demonstrate how important hand washing is to cleanliness, all the children handled a slice a bread, before washing their hands and then handling a second slice of bread. We will be observing what happens to the bread over the coming days.
