Thackray Museum

Year 2 are busy being trainee nurses and porters during our Florence Nightingale workshop at Thackray Medical Museum in Leeds. They re-enacted preparing for and travelling to Scutari Hospital to help improve the hospital conditions and tend to wounded soldiers fighting in the Crimean War. The workshop session was very interactive and pupils handled aretfacts and were involved in a timeline activity. They also explored the Lifezone to find out about the human body and keeping healthy.
