A basket appeared in our classroom, it contained lots of old artifacts including old bandages, a book, a tea towel with Queen Victoria on it, cotton wool, a glass medicine bottle, a bonnet and a lantern.
We passed the artifacts around the circle and discussed who they could belong to. We then found an old photo of a lady. We wrote enquiry questions around the picture. Some of our ideas were: Maybe she is a: farmer, doctor, nurse, shepherd, vet.
We then googled a nurse from a long time ago and found out it was Florence Nightingale. We will be finding out more about her over the next couple of weeks.
