Alexis' mum came into school this morning. She has a very important job of being a Midwife! She explained to us that sometimes when they listen to the babies heartbeat they use something called a 'Pinard'. Jenny said that she can work in lots of different places such as hospitals, doctors and people's houses. We found out that babies are all different sizes and weights. She works different shifts that include early morning and late night and most are 13 hours a day! Jenny told us some important words - embryo and umbilical cord!
This morning had a special visitor Mrs Kaya, who has a very special job as a Public Enquiry Assistant. She told us all about what happens at the police station. The first job the police offices have to do is check their police car and then check if their sirens are working. She told us that she works in both Leyland and Chorley police stations. She explained to the children that there are a police station in every town. The children asked lots of interesting questions and found out lots of information Thank you so much to Mrs Kaya for visiting!
This morning we started our new topic 'People who Help Us'. We had a special visitor Mr Benney, who has a very special job as a Paramedic! He came to school in his uniform and explained what he did. We found out the first job he has to do when he starts work is to make sure that the ambulance is set up ready and the phone and radio is working as thats how he finds out where he needs to go. He told us lots of stories including that the oldest person he had to help was aged 96! Thank you so much to Mr Benney for visiting!
