The Florence Nightingale Museum is located in London and is well worth a visit if you happen to be in London at any time during October half term or indeed any other time! It is close to Waterloo station and is situated in the grounds of St Thomas’ Hospital; there is a small entry charge. The museum is only small but is a great introduction to the story of Florence Nightingale which we will be learning about after the break.
Another landmark relevant to our Y2 topics is the Great Fire of London Monument which is situated at Pudding Lane, next to Monument tube station. If you are feeling energetic, or wish to tire the children out, why not climb the 311 steps to the top to enjoy an amazing view of London? Click here for information.
Have a wonderful half term break and don’t forget to practise on those violins and ‘cellos!
