Hi everyone, we had a visit from Sian Edwards from Heartbeat and today we were 'mini medics'. This was great fun but also serious. We started by watching video clips of accidents and how best to help someone. We all knew that 999 was the emergency number but then Sian told us that you could also dial 112. We learnt what to do if someone was bleeding. We then learnt how to put someone in the recovery position and one of our friends had to work with the teacher because we were an odd number, but he was able to put an adult into the position. It was great fun, but also we learnt about something serious and that one day we might need. After that we then learnt about CPR and the importance of keeping a steady rhythm. We had the dolls to practice on and this was hard work especially on the heel of your hands and shoulders. Sian gave us an emergency booklet to take home once we had completed our work in school. In school we created mini medic information leaflets with photographs of the afternoon on them. Below are our pictures of a great afternoon.
Here are our pictures of the visit from Heartbeat.
