Class Experience

Students will learn about Florence Nightingale.
I have a Masters and a PGCE from Oxford and have taught history for many years.
On Outschool I run a successful series of 'History Detectives!' classes which specialise in making history interesting, engaging and informative in an age-appropriate way. (E.g. my classes on the Titanic, The Great Fire of London, Henry VIII).
A pencil or pen. A sheet of paper. Some colours (crayons or marker pens).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The class discusses that Florence Nightingale became a nurse because of a religious conviction.

The class does discuss that Florence Nightingale went to the Crimean War and helped saved soldiers' lives. There is, therefore, some mention of warfare and casualties, but the main focus is on Florence Nightingale's pioneering work. Our focus is that Florence Nightingale saved lives!

Students will be invited to stand up if they have enough space and to sway and to shut their eyes for a moment and pretend that they are travel sick! Parents may want to supervise their student doing this, and/or ensure they have enough space around them.
