CPR FIRST AID TRAINING
Building on our training before Christmas on the recovery position, today we have learnt how to give an unconscious person CPR. We watched to see how a defibulator can also save lives. We all tried to keep a steady beat and keep pressing onto the heart and worked in teams to keep up the treatment and then allow each of us a little rest before our turn again.
Today we met our new sponsored puppy called Elsie. She was lovely. She met us all and gave us all a cuddle and we learnt how her training was going on. Dave and Sylvia told us lots of detail about guide dogs - did you know it takes 2 years to train a dog to become a working guide dog.
FIRST AID FROM CHORLEY ANGELS.
We learnt some basic first aid such as recovery position, checking for a pulse and advice on what we can do in an emergency.
We used an authentic polling booth from Chorley council to cast our votes. The children understood that in a democracy it is the majority that control who wins - not individuals.
Good luck to our 6 candidates.
