Celebrating Florence Nightingale at Stroud School

Stroud School Year 1 children enjoyed a Florence Nightingale Day and learnt about her life and work.

26th November 2020 — The children listened to stories about the 'Lady and the Lamp', made lanterns and investigated artefacts from her lifetime.

At the end the day, the classroom was turned into an old, dirty hospital and the young 'nurses' transformed the hospital into a clean hospital, whilst feeding the injured soldiers, reading to them by lamp light and writing letters using a quill and ink.

This was such a fantastic day!

About Stroud School, King Edward VI Preparatory School

Stroud is a true preparatory school. When you visit us, expect to see pupils who are happy, respectful and honest. These three fundamental attributes ensure that our leavers are fully prepared to move on to the next stage of their education and the start of their young adult lives.

Our provision for education, within 20 acres of rural Hampshire, allows for exploration and the development of a love of learning. Crucially, this is carefully balanced across a wider curriculum that provides not only academic rigour and focus, but also the sort of opportunities and experiences that remain with our pupils for the rest of their lives.
