People Who Help Us

We have been learning about people who help us. Nurse Georgia came to visit us. She spoke about how she looks after children who are ill in hospital. We then used a real stethoscope to listen to our heart beating. Nurse Georgia also put bandages on us. We had a great day finding out about how nurses help us.
