The Nursery children had a great time today. To develop their hand eye coordination and fine motor skills, they hammered golf tees into a melon! They were very careful and put their safety googles on first. What fun!

Year 3 Paramedic Visit

We had a special visit today from paramedics Steff and Tash, along with their ambulance. In PSE this term we have been learning about first aid and the DR ABC method and are so lucky to have had this opportunity this afternoon. The session was so informative and the children thoroughly enjoyed having their stats read and being able to explore inside the ambulance. The children had lots of questions to ask and each of them was answered in detail. A huge thank you, I’m sure the children will remember this session for a long time!

The children then took part in water based challenges to see who could save the most water! They were so engaged and really enjoyed! Awesome teamwork Year 3!
