Year 6 First Aid Training – December 2016

On Thursday 15th December Year 6 took part in a 3 hour First Aid Training Course run by St John Ambulance. During the morning the children learnt how to recognise an unresponsive casualty and how to respond to save a life and put a person into the recovery position. They experienced how it feels to have an asthma attack and how to help someone who is having an attack! They also learnt how to treat a choking casualty by delivering back blows and abdominal thrusts. The training was excellent and they all agreed they now feel more confident to help in a situation as a first aider.
