Florence Nightingale


Florence Nightingale was brave and ambitious, she has helped women today to be able to work and have good jobs because in her time, women used to stay at home and not have a job.  Listen to the story again of Florence Nightingale, it will help you to answer these questions. Please remember to write in full sentences, and do not start your sentence with because.


I would love to see some lovely designs of lamps or you could even make one. You may even like to make a sentence about your lamp afterwards or pretend to be Florence looking after her patients in the hospital, checking that they are fine. 

 Key questions
What did Florence Nightingale carry at night in the hospitals? 
What did the patients call her? 
How do you think the soldiers felt about her? 
Can you draw or make your own lamp?
