Nightingale Class (Yr 1) – Mrs Player

Welcome to Nightingale Class

Hello, I am Mrs Player and I joined the school in September 2019. I am very excited to be settling into my new role as Nightingale class teacher and have lots of fun things to bring to the learning environment.

Being a NQT I feel ready to give the children lots of exciting opportunities through which they can enjoy learning new things. I like to bring a fresh and dynamic way of teaching into the classroom that will enable all children to get the most out of their time at school. I encourage kindness, respect and community in our classroom.

My favourite subjects to teach are English, Art and History. I also love to bring opportunities for drama and social interaction into all subjects.

Our Class Name

Florence Nightingale (12 May 1820 – 13 August 1910), was an English nurse. She helped create the modern techniques of nursing. She became a leader of the team of nurses who helped wounded soldiers during the Crimean War.

She was the first female to receive the Order of Merit, the highest honour awarded to a British person. As a nurse she was given the name ‘The Lady with the Lamp’ because at night, she checked on the wounded soldiers and always carried ‘The Lamp’ with her.
