A Trip to A&E!

On Tuesday 1st May, Year 4 was lucky enough to visit Peterborough Hospital’s 999 Club. This visit was to help inspire our learning for this term's topic Body Sparks!

When we arrived, we were greeting by two fabulous nurses, who were our guides for the afternoon, and a skeleton!  We had a fascinating trip and learnt about many aspects of the hospital.  We were really excited to learn about ambulances and see inside one and especially liked having the opportunity to sit in the driver’s seat!  We found out all about the children’s Jungle Ward and the types of treatments you could expect to see there including checking oxygen levels and blood pressure. 

After that, we saw x-rays of broken bones and discovered the names of these different bones, but the highlight of the trip was being given the chance to try out some different treatments such as slings, bandages, numbing sprays and event plaster casts!  We had a great time at Peterborough Hospital and left feeling excited and reassured that the hospital is full of amazing doctors and nurses who can help us get better.
