Here's what Year 1/2 are learning this term...

Giraffe news

Who Is florence nightingale?

This term as part of our History, Giraffes are learning all about Florence Nightingale.

On Friday 13th September we had our first 'Hook Day'. We set the classroom up to make our very own hospital with beds and a waiting room. The children all learnt about the famous nurse Florence Nightingale. We then made our own nurse hats and badges and got to work helping all the unwell people. The children had a fantastic day bandaging their friends (and teddies) up, giving them medicine (sweets!) and playing hospitals. 

Later in the day we made lamps just like the one Florence Nightingale or 'The lady with the lamp' may have had by staining paper in cold tea and folding the paper once dry. We then wrapped gold and silver paper around the top and bottom, attached a handle and we were all ready to work through the night! (See photo to the left).


Harvest Festival
We celebrated Harvest on Friday 4th October in our whole school assembly. We all learnt a song 'Little Combined Harvester'
and performed it in front of the school and our families!
