This term's History topic in Hazel is all about Florence Nightingale.  Starting this week, we will add a new task to the Hazel Class page about Florence Nightingale for the children to do.  It would be good to see this work when we eventually come back to school, so please, if you are feeling enthusiastic,  you could either make a special folder with the work the children have done or just write and draw directly into the purple homework book.  We will add a different activity each week that relates to the History topic.




Florence Nightingale Unit - Week 1


· Watch BBC Clips video


· Draw and colour a picture of Florence Nightingale and write the words that best describe her around the edge.

· Words you might use: determined, ambitious, studious, wealthy, organised, hard-working, strict, kind
