Visit to Queen’s Medical Centre

On Thursday 25th February 2016 the whole school except Reception went to the Queen’s Medical Centre. First we came inside and they told us the rules about what we should do and how we should stay safe.

After that we split up into older and younger pupils. We then were taught how to help someone if they were unconscious or not breathing. This is the code for how to do it: D stands for Danger, R stands for Response, S stands for Shout, A stands for Airway, B stands for Breathing and C stands for CPR. We learnt how to use a defibrillator.

Later on we practised CPR on dummies and then watched some videos about what you should do if someone got hurt. Then we went into a room and split into four groups. We went into the children’s area and looked at some equipment that you might use when you’re injured. A few minutes later we saw what you had if you broke something or fractured a bone.


Finally, we saw another defibrillator in an ambulance and looked at some things in there.
