A short song for young children with some basic information about KS1 Topic Florence Nightingale, her work in Crimea and outlining her contribution to nursing. The lyrics are as follows

Florence Nightingale We must never fail
To know the things you taught the world to do
You set out to bring help to soldiers suffering
Nursing changed so much because of you
In the dead of night Your lamp brought new light
And in Crimea you showed what to do
Florence Nightingale We will never fail
To recognise the debt we owe to you

The song could be used as an introduction to the topic of Florence Nightingale, as a means of memorizing the basic facts or even as the soundtrack to a little video using drawings by the children

The resource pack contains an mp3 of the song, an mp3 backing track, sheet music and lyrics

Fantastic song - really easy for the children to sing well! My Year 2s have loved practising for our class assembly!
