Living and Learning: I know some basic first aid

Friday 01 April 2022

Last week, we discussed what to do in an emergency. The children came up with different ideas about who they would get to help them in an emergency situation.

We discussed how we can call 999 to get the help we need.

This week, we explored first aid and attitudes towards first aid and helping others.

First, we discussed what is mean by first aid. We decided it was the first help given to someone who is ill or injured and is in need of help/aid. Next, we read some statements out loud and the children had to decide if they agreed or disagreed and we shared our opinions.

For example

“a. I would know how to help someone in a first aid situation.

b. It’s important to know first aid.

c. People should always get the help they need in a first aid situation. “
