First Aid in Year 4

This week, to link in with our English work on Shackleton’s adventure to Antarctica, we have spent some time in the outdoor classroom learning about basic first aid. We have role played various situations, including asthma attacks, bleeding and calling for an ambulance!

The key points we learnt were:

  • To keep calm 
  • Check it’s safe to help
  • Ask what happened and what hurts
  • Say kind, comforting things
  • Take action if you can
  • Get help (an adult or call 999)
