Primary pupils have a go at being medics

Harwich and Manningtree Standard: Primary pupils have a go at being medics Primary pupils have a go at being medics

PRIMARY school pupils took their first steps towards becoming doctors and nurses with a medical workshop.

Year 5 and 6 pupils from around Ardleigh, Bradfield and Lawford took their own blood pressure, read their temperatures, measured oxygen levels and blew into a peak flow meter during a day in the science department at Manningtree High School.

They also used an otoscope to show the hair and wax from their ears on a big screen and used glasses to feel what it would be like to have tunnel or blurred vision.

Science coordinator Ros Fretwell said: “Everyone commented that their time spent here was good fun and they learnt a lot.

“Quite a few pupils fancied the idea of working in the medical profession once they were old enough and if they studied hard.”
