WRITING: A day in the life of Florence Nightingale.

 

Write a diary entry imagining that you are Florence Nightingale. Can you answer these questions in your writing?

 

What was the hospital like?

What could you smell, hear and see?

How did Florence (you) feel?

What treatment did Florence give to injured soldiers?

At night, she walked around with her lamp checking the soldiers she wrote letters for them and talked to them. What might she have written or talked about?

 

You may wish to use my opening below to help you with your writing:

 

Monday 15th March 1855

In Scutari hospital in Turkey the conditions are awful, overcrowded and filthy. There are not enough beds, so man are lying on the floor. Every night I light my lantern and walk around the wards to check how the soldiers are.

 

MATHS: Measuring Capacity – SET A and SET B (SET C optional)

 

*to complete SET C questions, you will need to be able to print this worksheet. For SET A/SET B you can write the answers directly into your exercise booksblush

Good morning Year 2!

For maths, we will continue our work on measurement - there are two Purple Mash activities set for you to complete. Mrs Pawson has planned some great E-Safety activities for us to complete this half term - today's activity is all about 'making choices' 

 

I hope you all have a super day!

 

Take care, 

Miss Hill

Good morning Class 2!

WELCOME BACK

I hope you are all well and enjoyed a lovely rest over the Whit holiday!smiley

 

Thank you for your ‘child reviews of the year’ that have been sent into school already (either handed in at school or sent to the Y2 home learning email.) If you haven’t yet completed yours, please could you do so over the next couple of weeks. Also, please make sure you use the school template to complete your review of the year – if you can’t print the template at home, there are copies available outside school for you to come and collect. I have included the template below:

For your home learning this half term, I will try to give a choice of some different tasks and activities. You can choose which questions to complete (e.g. SET A/SET B/SET C). Some will be slightly easier and others more difficult if you would like to give yourself an extra challenge! It is entirely up to you which questions or which comprehension etc you choose to complete!

 

I hope you all have a wonderful day!

 

Take care,

Miss Hill
