Today we had a visit from Sian from Heartbeat. We spent the afternoon learning about First Aid. We watched several video clips based on choking, bleeding, what to do in an emergency if someone collapsed. We had lots of discussions, but we couldn't practice these moves as it is very dangerous as we could cause internal bleeding. We then split into partners and Sian told us how to put someone in the recovery position. It was easy and we even got to put our teachers in the recovery position. She then showed us a video clip of a child carrying out CPR on an adult and then we used the resuscitation dolls to practice CPR. We had several goes at this, it was hard work.
Here are the photographs of our afternoon with Sian.
