Scutari Hospital in our barn!

RSM Thomas has been learning about the conditions injured soldiers wherein during thy Crimean war a long long time ago. He read about a lady called Florence Nigtingale a asked us to find out all we could using non-fiction sources. To help us understand what Florence and her nurses had to do when they got to the hospital in Scutari, we created an old hospital in our barn outside. We had to clean it up just like the nurses (we were glad there was no mouldy food or maggots!)
