Heart Start 23 Jan 2013

Helford class are the first children in our school to have heart start training. Mrs Smitheram and Mrs Gilbert are qualified now and are really excited about bringing this to Constantine School. We have lots of activities, role play challenges and practical work for the children to enjoy whilst learning some very important life skills. We hope to deliver heart start to KS2 children. They will learn: what to do in an emergency; calling for help; the recovery position; dealing with choking, bleeding and a suspected heart attack. Children in Years 5 and 6 may also go onto learning cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Here we are checking for a response and breathing. We had some great call centre support from Wilf who asked all the right questions.
