Year 6 First Aid Workshop

At the First Aid Workshop, we started by learning if you need to give CPR to someone; we were shown the procedure of how to check if they actually needed it. We got into partners and performed it on each other, firstly making sure it was safe around them and then shouting for help if they weren’t responding. We had to do compressions for 30 beats and then 2 breaths. We also learned the correct way to put someone in the recovery position.

During the session we also practised putting bandages and slings on somebody if they were bleeding or seriously hurt a part of their upper body. We learned how to help somebody who is choking by giving them back slaps, found out what should be kept in a first aid kit, and also how to correctly administer an epi-pen in case of an allergic reaction.
