We had a very special visitor to our school. Florence Nightingale came to tell us all about the important nursing work she did during the Crimean War. We dressed as nurses and British soldiers and imagined we were at Scutari Hospital. We learnt all about the terrible diseases and conditions in the hospitals at that time, almost 200 years ago.
