Dartford Bridge Primary

Year 6 First

Year 6 completed a First Aid course today and have been awarded the ‘Mini First Aider’ certificate in ‘Basic Life Support’. In this session, the children watched Sarah’s story, which showed them how basic first aid support saved her dad when he fell unconscious. The children have learnt how to check consciousness, open airways, the recovery position and to perform the cardio aspect of CPR. They were able to use their prior learning in science to identify why it was important to get the heart beating again if someone shows signs of cardiac arrest because our blood carries oxygenated blood. All of the children portrayed the BRIDGE values through their respect, growing together and independence in carrying out these important tasks sensibly. We are really proud of them all 😊
