An exciting visit for our Summer Term began this week with our new topic ‘People who help us!’
After a lovely Easter holiday we sat together and shared our ideas for learning! In the Discovery room we have a Vets role play area, a Post office in the Literacy room and a postal sorting Office in the Maths room where we have been busy wrapping parcels of all shapes and sizes!
This week in school, we had our very first visit from a very important person. Mr. Bugden, a Nurse at Worthing hospital. He was so kind and helpful and we had so much fun! Not only did he answer all our questions about the work that he does, he brought us lots of things we could use in our Vets Surgery! Our class ‘pets’ are all carefully bandaged after Mr. Bugden showed us how to be ‘experts’ at this!
Taylor volunteered to have a real plaster cast put on her arm! Nurse Bugden used different textures of bandages to wrap her arm. The final one had to be soaked in warm water and carefully wrapped across the other bandages. Taylor said it was ‘warm and sticky’ as we all watched with wonder. She couldn’t wear it for too long as it was beginning to go hard as we watched! Luckily, Mr. Bugden had wrapped it looselysothat she could easily remove it! Especially as in the hospital it would have had to be cut off!
We worked in small groups bandaging each other’s heads, arms, wrists and legs!He said we had made a brilliant job and after only one demonstration! Please take a look at the photos!
We were very lucky, we also had Mrs. Slaughter, our Reading helper in too! She was also a Nurse so we had two people we could ask lots of questions! She explained that she had been a Midwife and when we asked her how many babies she had delivered she told us over two hundred!!!
Thank you Mr. Bugden and Mrs. Slaughter, for an exciting morning, and a wonderful start to our new topic for this ½ term. Please watch this space to find out who we will be visiting us over the next few weeks! We can’t wait!
