Willow class have been studying a variety of different inspirational people in History and Geography this half term. This week, we learnt about Florence Nightingale, "the lady of the lamp", and her work around nursing. Students in Willow then had the opportunity to practice some basic first aid skills. We also learnt about an artist called Christy Brown. Christy Brown was born with cerebral palsy and was only able to use his left foot to carry out tasks; the students were not keen to attempt painting with their left foot but instead attempted to paint with their non-dominant hand to gain a better understanding of what it would be like to carry out tasks with a limb that they are not used to using in this way.
