As part of LGBT+ History Month, we have been talking about Dr Sophia Jex-Blake in nursery today.
Sophia was born in 1840 in England, and she was a curious and smart young girl. She loved
learning and dreamed of becoming a doctor, but back then, people thought that only
boys could be doctors.
However, Sophia was not one to give up easily. She decided to challenge this. She worked
hard and studied on her own, proving that girls could be just as smart and capable as
boys. Sophia’s determination caught the attention of other brave girls who shared her
Eventually, Sophia fought for her right to attend medical school, and in 1869, she became
the first woman to enrol at the University of Edinburgh to study medicine. This was a
huge achievement, and Sophia didn’t stop there. She went on to inspire more girls to
pursue their dreams, breaking down barriers in the process, by establishing two medical
schools – one in London and the other in Edinburgh.
Sophia Jex-Blake showed the world that everyone, regardless of gender, should have
the chance to follow their passions and make a difference. She paved the way for many
girls who dream of becoming doctors today.
The children had great fun with our doctor-themed tuff tray today – and agree that it doesn’t matter what gender you are, you can do the job you dream of doing!
The nursery children have enjoyed exploring the trim trail on the main school yard today. After a very windy start to the week, we were happy to get outside for some outdoor fun. We practiced our climbing and balancing skills – we were all incredibly brave, attempting lots of challenging obstacles.
We’re already looking forward to our next visit to the trim trail!
Just a little reminder that if one of your children or a child that you care for has received an Autism diagnosis, then you can contact the EarlyBird Team and enroll onto a really informative and supportive course to help you understand more about Autism and get lots of tips and ideas from the course providers and other parents and carers.
Please see the attached flyer for the up and coming Information Meeting dates (in green) and just pop along as there is no need to book a place.
