LKS2 taught First Aid!
Over three days, the Lower Key Stage Two classes were each visited by St John's Ambulance to learn basic first aid.
After some discussion about what should and shouldn't be inside a first aid box, the children were taught how to administer first aid to an unconscious casualty. First they needed to check the surroundings to ensure they wouldn't also be hurt. When the children were certain that the casualty could be approached safely, they were able to practise their new skills such as checking for a response, checking for breathing and putting the casualty into a recovery position whilst waiting for more help or an ambulance to come.
The afternoon ended with all the children practising their wrapping of bandages and going home with broken arms...luckily, the parents were understanding!
