The session today was to learn CPR. All of the children were able to practise using a life saving doll. We listened to 'Staying Alive' by the Bee Gees to help us keep the rhythm. Da iawn blant. Next week, Thursday 28th January, will be our final session.
This week we have been learning about poisoning and what we can do to try and prevent this happening.
This week we have been learning how to recognise and treat a fracture. We practised using a triangular bandage to stabilise a fractured arm.

DRAB - what does this means?
Ask our young lifesavers and they will tell you this stands for:
R - Response
A - Airway
B - Breathing
Look at us in action!
Younglife Savers Club
Well done everyone. Our club has finished and our Year 6 children have skills to help in many different scenarios when a casualty needs help.
We look forward to returning in the Autumn Term 2015.
Before we started to learn about CPR, we used our DRAB skills to assess the casualty.
We now know that CPR stands for chest compression and rescue breathing. This important life skill now means we know where to place our hands and the ratio of chest compression to rescue breaths.
We have also learnt that hands-only CPR can still save a life. Click the following link to see it in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILxjxfB4zNk
