First Aid in Year 3

Children in Classes 7 and 8 have all been learning some useful First Aid skills this week, helped by members of St John’s Ambulance. On Monday, Neil came to work with Class 7, explaining when the recovery position was used and how to put someone into it. In the hall the children practised putting each other into the recovery position and then practised bandaging each other up; some bandages were neater than others! On Wednesday, Paul came to work with Class 8. He taught the children about the primary survey, practised bandaging skills with the children and talked about emergency phone numbers. The children also practised putting each other in the recovery position. What a lot we all learnt!
