Today we had a visit from a nurse, her name was Dionne. She worked as an army medic and then at the doctors. She brought lots of exciting kit with her. We all got a turn to listen to our heartbeats using a stethoscope.
Nurse Dionne talked to us about emergencies and we discussed that you call 999.
Olivia: I learned that hangnails are hereditary.
Hannah: I remember the blood pressure cuff because I’ve seen that at the hospital.
Jacob: The little blue tube is for blood and it can be used to test for 100 things.
We have learnt that it is important to have a first aid kit at home because you can use it if you hurt yourself.
