KS1: History: Florence Nightingale
Another of our packs that no classroom or home should be without! The story of Florence Nightingale, one of the most influential women in history, should be known by all KS1 children. This 3 part Topic Pack is ideal for all children but especially struggling readers.
The sentences are short, using basic words and structure. The numbered sections and colour illustrations make the Topic Booklet engaging yet simple to read. With one point and illustration per section, it is easy for children to follow the events of Florence's amazing life.
As well as an illustrated Topic Booklet to tell the story, the pack also includes a Write Your Own Notes Booklet, with illustrations to match the Topic Booklet and blanks for children to fill in to complete the story. The visual prompts help them recall information enabling them to complete the task easily, giving a sense of achievement. A cut out timeline activity helps them understand the sequence of events in a visual way.
Once they have completed the Write Your Own Notes booklet, they can use the Active Learning Map and character cards to see how much of the story they can remember. Questions around the map prompt them and the character cards provide visual answers to re-enact events. The Active Learning Map brings the story to life in a kinaesthetic way and the physical movement of the character cards really helps engage children and reinforce their learning.
