Florence Nightingale comes to visit

Today everything was put on hold… Miss Nightingale turned up at Richard Alibon! At first no one knew who she was but year 2 recognised her straight away.

We were delighted to have such a special guest and were extremely excited to learn more about her, even though we knew so much already.

She shared stories from her childhood and from her time working at Scutari Hospital during The Crimean War. We were so lucky to experience a masterclass in bandaging war wounds from Florence Nightingale herself!

Take a look at Year 2 in action!
