East Midlands Ambulance Service Paramedic Visit

Wow! We have had a fantastic day with our parent governor, Richard, who came to talk to us about being a paramedic and what we could do in an emergency.

We learnt how to dial 999 and request help from an ambulance and then talked about ‘big accidents’ that need an ambulance and ‘little accidents’ that grown ups can deal with themselves at home or school.

Richard then showed us his kit bags that he carries in the Fast Response Vehicle with all the equipment that may be used to help us. We pretended that Katy had hurt her leg and Richard and the children checked her heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen and temperature before deciding that she just needed a bandage and some Calpol!

After this, we had lots of fun sitting in the Fast Response Vehicle and turning on the VERY loud sirens and lights before trying on the ‘mini’ paramedic uniforms and working as paramedics in our very own ambulance in the playground.

We finished our session with some colouring sheets with lots of emergency vehicles on them and then Richard read us a story all about an ambulance.

All the children behaved amazingly well and all joined in with the different activities, we are very proud of them!!

Take a look at all the fun we had in the photos below!

Welcome to Class 2RH


You’ll find us squirreling away in our room – Bec Houghton, Jayne Chippendale and Sophie Welch joining the team on a Thursday and Friday.

We are starting back with a new exciting topic – Myths, Magic and Mystery. The children have already started to explore this – making castles, dragons, finding out about Kings and Queens from the past and designing their own mythical creatures. Check out our launch day pictures below!

Al the Alligator

We are really looking forward to welcoming Al the Alligator to Foundation One for the first time tomorrow!

He will be visiting us every week from now on to choose a child to take ‘Little Al’ home with them for the week.

For your chance to have ‘Little Al’ around for a sleepover all you have to do is attend nursery every day AND arrive on time for the session. On Friday, all names will be put into a hat and Al will visit us on a Monday and choose the winner.

Good luck everybody!
