Year 1 visit Claydon House
On Wednesday 28th June, Year 1 pupils from Drayton Parslow and Mursley went to Claydon House to learn more about the life of Florence Nightingale and the Crimean war.
We learnt about the dedication that Florence showed to wounded soldiers at the hospital in Scutari who had bravely fought. We roleplayed soldiers and nurses at the hospital and also learnt more about what life was like as a British soldier fighting abroad.
Claydon House is where Florence's sister Parthenope lived with her husband and we were able to see her bedroom where she stayed and even a small lock of her hair! It was a fun-filled learning experience for all!
