The Lady of the Lamp visits Eastbrook Primary

Year 1 were fortunate enough to have Florence Nightingale, AKA Kathy from Freshwater Theatre company join them today to further develop their history learning and understanding of significant individuals from the past. The children will now be able to confidently tell you about how Nurse Nightingale changed the face of nursing and the positive impact that her actions have on us as individuals in modern day Britain.

Through such an interactive workshop, the children also learned many other interesting facts about this remarkable lady’s life, including her early childhood as part of a wealthy family, attitudes to women in the 19th century, her ongoing determination to become a nurse and her final legacy- ‘The Nightingale School of Nursing’.

Thank you Freshwater Theatre Company for filling our minds with knowledge and our faces with smiles!
