Career Day

Today we were lucky to be visited by Leonia, a nurse. She taught the children what to do in an emergency and allowed us to explore how to use a stethoscope, blood pressure machine and a pulse oximeter. The children had fun practising how to bandage different parts of their bodies. Below are some pictures of us exploring different equipment. Everyone had lots of fun.

Our Week

This week we have been busy creating our aquarium. The children have enjoyed role playing in the ticket office and naming the different fish. Outside, we have been role playing in the hot chocolate cafe and even got to try some. The children practised their waiting skills as well as counting out money to pay for their drinks. We have also been learning about arctic animals, setting them free from the ice.
