This afternoon we learned some more about Florence Nightingale. We looked at the conditions in the hospital as she arrived and then talked about how she improved them. We worked with a partner to think of questions we would like to ask Florence about the hospital. Then we did some role play.
Here are some of our questions for Florence.
After our role play we learned about Florence Nightingale being called ‘The lady of the lamp’. We made our own lamps.
Can you remember the answers to these questions?
What was the name of the war?
Where was the hospital?
What did Florence Nightingale see when she first went into the hospital?
How did Florence Nightingale Nightingale improve the hospital conditions?
Why was she known as ‘The lady of the lamp’?
After working very hard learning about worms for the past four weeks, our Literacy topic has now changed. This week we have been reading a lovely Easter story called Max’s Chocolate Chicken. Today we worked in groups and thought about the characters in the story.
Year 3 did a Mother’s Day Assembly this morning and wow it was terrific! The parents, who attended, were left emotional after the wonderful children in Year 3 touched hearts with some songs, humour and loving video messages.
Watch the assembly in full below. Also, watch our Year 3 children with messages to their mums.
