History in Year 2

February 10, 2017

In Literacy this term Year 2D have been studying Florence Nightingale and other significant individuals.
They’ve found out a lot of interesting facts about her, about the Crimean War, about nurses and hospitals of those times.

During their lessons they have written a biography about Florence’s life, non-chronological report about doctors and nurses and informal and formal letters.

Recently they have created a job advert for a new nurse for Florence’s hospital.

They really enjoyed writing a letter pretending to be a solider in the 1850’s writing to their parents explaining how Florence Nightingale has improved the hospital. Some children came up with some very imaginative stories.
After this they then independently wrote a persuasive letter to Ms Deeble-Rogers. They have all enjoyed learning about significant individuals from history and learning about different types of writing.
