This week we had some special visitors in F2.
As part of our ‘people who help us’ topic, Ruth and Sarah (a hospital nurse and a community nurse) came to visit us. They spoke to the children about how they care for people at home and in hospital.
They asked the children what the role of a nurse is?
- “Put plasters on.”
- “Might do an x-ray if somebody get hurt on their bone.”
- “Help you get healthy.”
They brought some of their equipment (stethoscope, bandages, heartbeat monitor) to show the children. They showed the children a stethoscope and explained how they use it to listen to a person’s heartbeat and their breathing. They modelled how to dress a wound using a bandage. The children talked about their experiences of bandages:
- “If your hand is bleeding you need to put it on your hand.”
- “One day when I was riding on my bike I fell off and daddy put one on my hand.”
- “I hurt my elbow and had it all up my arm.”
We’d like to say a big thank you to Ruth and Sarah for coming in to see us. We’d love to have more visitors to talk about their job and how they help others. Please speak to a member of the F2 team if you are interested.
