Right, everyone think of five sentences that describe Florence Nightingale. Done? Now use 4,32,28,+,- and = and makeup as many different sums as you can, then if you wouldn’t mind drawing and labelling a plant.
If you can do that, you have successfully completed Miss Frugal’s (aged 7) homework!
I presumed she would know the Florence Nightingale bit but no, she couldn’t remember anything about her other than she was a nurse. Thanks god for Google eh!
Just so you know (in Miss Frugal’s words) :
- Florence Nightingale was trained to be a nurse.
- She liked to help the soldier men.
- She was born in 1820.
- She was asked to go to the Crimean War.
- The soldiers liked hur.
The sums took forever and the plant is an absolute work of art – If we don’t get a gold star for this I’ll be livid lol.
Poor Master Frugal (aged 4) only had to draw and label his family – poor little love can hardly write his name!
At the risk of sounding like an old woman, I’m sure that homework was never this hard in my day. In fact, I don’t think we even got homework till senior school.
