Year 3 are making clay canopic jars for their Egyptian Topic. I must say watching from another class I can see the children are having a fantastic time with this topic.
Year 4 have been using the app Book Creator to design and write up the information books that they have been working on over the last few weeks. I look forward to seeing what they have created.
First Aid training in Year 5
Both Pelicans and Flamingos have been learning first aid with Ms Debbie.
They are now familiar with the emergency communication in Beijing and China, including the different numbers for the Ambulance, Fire and Police services.
Today they are learning practical skills for conscious and unconscious casualties including how to put someone in the recovery position and to perform CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation).
The rest of the week children will learn about choking casualties, how to deal with a bleeding wound. Also, living in Beijing we are often exposed to extreme changes in temperature. Children will be learning about the symptoms and treatment of hypothermia and hyperthermia. I hope they will be able to explain the difference.
The children are really enjoying this. It is fun with a link to lifelong learning and could make a big difference as a necessary life skill.
