People Savers

What would you do if you came across an accident?

Yesterday we learnt the Doctors ABC (DRSABC) for saving people. We know that
     D = Danger,     R = Response,     S = Send for help     A = Airway     B = breathing     C = circulation

What dangers would you be checking for?
How would would you check for a response from the victim?
How would you send for help?
How would you check if the victim is breathing?
How would you check the victims circulation?

United Kingdom Tours


Today we found out that the All Blacks got this nickname during a tour of the United Kingdom in 1905.  We then used our prior rugby knowledge to decide which teams the All Blacks would play on a tour of the United Kingdom. Willis even knew that we played a team called Lions from the United Kingdom. Anna then told us the All Black use to play mid week games against provincial teams. Sam thought Munster would have been one of these teams.

Do you know which United Kingdom teams the All Blacks play tests against and which teams they might have played mid week games against?

      • People can't afford the jersey so displaying support for All Black Rugby
      • Could encourage thieving
      • Adidas don't make as many jerseys
      • Businesses left with unsold jerseys
