Today we shared Kallum's story about when he split his head open and went to hospital. We were visited by the school nurse and we were told about the recovery position and then practised on each other. We then listened to each others heart rate using a stethascope. We talked about CPR and what to do if we found someone whose heart had stopped. Finally we checked Mrs Oswald's blood pressure, it was fine!
