Blood, Cuts and Bruises

During this session, we talked about ‘Blood, Cuts and Bruises’.

The children learned about what blood is made from and also how much of it there is in your body – quite an amazing fact when you think of it as Lemonade bottles!

Those who weren’t so squeamish were able to identify incised wounds, puncture wounds, grazes and bruises from different pictures before having fun trying out the bandages.

Each pair had to bandage a hand wound, then try a foot wound and a head wound if they had time – not a bad effort all round.
