Year 5 & 6 First Aid Courses

Year 5 & 6 First Aid Courses

Years 5 & 6 took part in First Aid training on 13th and 14th June.

Year 5 completed a First Aid Course this week, intended to help the children become more risk aware and to equip them with skills to keep themselves safe and help others. This included how to respond to someone who is unconscious and the steps to take if someone is choking. A highlight of the morning was the hands-on experience of practising their abdominal thrusts using an anti-choking vest. The children had a great morning and learnt many important first aid skills. 

Year 6 spent Tuesday in training to become First Aiders. Completing CPR on a mannequin and finding out about the appropriate actions when face with cardiac incidents. Hawk and Eagle displayed impressive levels of maturity and asked some pertinent questions of the medic leading.

I learned that CPR is the act of maintaining blood flow by keeping the heart pumping.” - Ayub

I didn’t know how to help someone who was choking. Now I know the Heimlich Manoeuvre!” - Macaulie
