Therfield First School

“Bringing Learning to Life”

Autumn 2 - Historical Heroines


Historical Events 


This half term we learnt about Guy Fawkes, finding out what happened and making some firework pictures. We also learnt about Remembrance Day. We created poppies to be displayed around the school and had an assembly with the Vicar from Therfield and Kelshall church, where we took part in the two minutes silence.


Florence Nightingale

To find out our topic this half term, we went on a letter hunt around the school and discovered we were learning about the inspirational Florence Nightingale. With thanks to our local museum, we had a workshop which gave us lots of information about her life and we even had a go at dressing as she would have. We used our amazing acting skills to act out Florence’s life and made audio recordings of scenes during the Crimean War.  Using our computing skills, we ended our unit creating fact files all about her.
