Spring Term: Under the Microscope
In our Spring term topic 'Under the Microscope' we will be
exploring the similarities and differences between Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole and Edith Cavell. These ladies were all pioneers within the nursing industry and had an enormous impact in shaping medicine and how it is viewed in today's society. We shall be delving into life during the Crimean War which took place from 1853 to 1856 and comparing this to World War One (WW1) which took place from 1914 to 1918. Children will learn that Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole helped soldiers during the Crimean war through improving hygiene and cleanliness. Edith Cavell helped soldiers in WW1 and encouraged nurses to help any soldiers regardless of their nationality.
