Synopsis

Florence Nightingale by Sally Hewitt

Ways into History: Florence Nightingale tells the story of the famous nurse and her battle to make nursing a respected profession. It also looks at why we remember Florence Nightingale today. It includes a timeline of her main nursing achievements at the back of the book. In the Ways into History series, original illustrations and simple text bring the past alive, while questions and activities encourage historical research and build up confidence and enthusiasm. The series encourages Key Stage 1 readers aged 5+ to begin to think like a historian and look for clues in descriptions and pictures that will help them answer questions about the past. The books include 'Talk About' sections that encourage readers to describe events or what people might have thought or felt at the time. Teaching and literacy notes help teachers and parents get the most out of the curriculum links in these books in a classroom or at home.
