The project is to give pupils an understanding of who Florence Nightingale was and what an important part she played in history. Pupils will be encouraged to learn about her life and achievements. Pupils will also take charge of a series of written and spoken tasks which will include discussions and a story.
This project can be covered in isolation or as part of a project about history. It is part of the ”KS1 Heroes of History” series of project packs and is designed to create a number of language rich speaking and listening opportunities leading into high quality writing outcomes. Activities leading to written outcomes can be taught as a sequence of lessons or as stand alone activities.
