We thoroughly enjoyed our visitors bringing our learning to life with many hands on activities - fingerprinting with the Police, learning how to bandage an arm with a Nurse, developing our cooking skills with a chef and finding out about the importance of eating healthy foods and brushing our teeth with the Dentist Nurse. We also developed our marching skills with the Territorial Army as well as learning about their uniform and the equipment they need.
