The Big First Aid Lesson

 

Friday was the day that’s St John’s Ambulance held a live ‘Big First Aid Lesson’.

Year 4 and 5 logged in and took part live along with hundreds of other schools.

We learnt how to treat burns that might happen with fireworks night coming up. We found out you must run it under cold water for at least 10 minutes to try and cool the burn. Then wrap it loosely in cling film or  a paper bag.

As well as learning how to save someone choking. We learnt about techniques called back blows and abdominal thrusts and got to recreate these ourselves if we needed to stop someone choking.

If you need to call an ambulance ring 999 or 112 from any phone.

Year 4 felt very confident leaving for a weekend full of fun and fireworks after having this training.
