Tydd St Mary youngsters learn to save lives
Youngsters at a village primary school have received training to help save a life.
Key Stage 2 pupils at Tydd St Mary CE Primary School had a half-day session on basic first aid training during "I can save a life" day.
Headteacher Sonia Ely said: "They were guided through how to make a detailed phone call during an emergency and went on to learn basic CPR, how to use a defibrillator, bandaging for a variety of wounds, how to treat burns and what to do when someone is choking.
"This was completed as part of our wider curriculum, giving children life skills for the future which may prove invaluable.
"All the children thoroughly enjoyed the session, practised the skills with enthusiasm and learned a great deal."
The children were rewarded for their efforts - Kingfishers class gaining a silver award and Owls class a gold award.
