Over the past couple of weeks, Room 4 have been very lucky to receive visits from some important people who have jobs which focus on helping others. This has been a great addition to our ‘People Who Help Us’ topic as we now have a better understanding of the kind of things that people in those jobs do.
We were lucky to have a nurse and a firefighter who visited us first. The nurse told us all about her role in an Accident and Emergency department and how she deals with people coming in who have hurt themselves. She brought in lots of equipment for us to see and feel, such as a stethoscope and she also showed us how she helps bandage up an injured patient.
The firefighter told us all about the different shouts that the fire service get called out to, his uniform and about the extensive training that he did to become a firefighter. He then told the boys and girls about the different things that are in a fire engine to help when they are called out to an emergency.
We then had a visit from an Executive Manager in a Recruitment company. Our visitor told us all about how she and her team put people who are looking for work into jobs in industries such as catering and transport. Our visitor told us that her office had worked so hard recently that they were awarded ‘Branch of the Month’ and she brought in her sparkly trophy to show everyone.
We were also lucky to have a police officer visit us too to tell us all about how he keeps people in the community safe. He showed us the equipment he carries whilst on the job and reassured the children that if they ever needed help, then him and his team are always there to lend a helping hand! Miss Mulreany was even used as a mannequin to try on a police uniform that the officers wear on certain jobs. To finish the visit off with great excitement, we all got to go outside and sit in the police van. Some of the children were in the front, some were in the back where all the officers sit and some of the children even got to sit in the police van cage! They found this very exciting. 🙂
The boys and girls have really enjoyed the recent visits and they had lots of questions which were answered in lots of detail so thank you. This has helped the children gain a better understanding about the people behind these jobs and the roles which they carry out daily. Thank you so much to our visitors it was great to have you with us and we would like to thank you for all your hard work in our community and for helping others in times of need – you are superstars!
