Fort Nelson Trip

Year 2 visited the Royal Armouries at Fort Nelson as part of thier Famous Faces topic.

Whilst on the trip the children learnt all about Florence Nightingale and her work in the Crimean War. The children learnt about the differences in the hospital in Scutari before and after Florence arrived.

The children were able to handle artefacts and learnt how they must be touched only when wearing special gloves. The children were able to try on different pieces of soldier's uniform from the Crimean War.

The children were taken into the tunnels at Fort Nelson and listened to excerpts from Florence Nightingale's diary.
