First Class Room 8: Welcome to our Museum

What an exciting and interesting week we had in Room 8!

The boys and girls in Room 8 were studying the life of a famous nurse named, Florence Nightingale.

This week, we learned loads about Florence Nightingale and her life as a nurse. Did you know that When Florence Nightingale returned to Great Britain she set up a school of nursing? Some of the students in room 8 would like to be a nurse so they can assist people just like Ms. Nightingale did.


Using items which were used during the time of Florence Nightingale, we set up our very own Museum in our classroom. We couldn’t believe that the tall porcelain objects were in fact hot water bottles.

Look at the picture and investigate our many artefacts.
