Article 24: You have the right to the best health care possible, safe water to drink, nutritious food, a clean and safe environment, and information to help you stay well.

As part of our topic on keeping healthy, Upper Key Stage 2 welcomed 2 Gps to school to talk to us about some very different topics.

Dr Hunt talked to us about how doctors diagnose and treat illnesses. We worked together to cure an virtual person. This involved looked at questioning, examination and investigations like endoscopy, stool tests and blood tests.  We diagnosed the patient with a stomach ulcer and decided on a course of treatment. For him this entailed a course of antibiotics and stopping both smoking and heavy drinking.

Dr Lewis- Barned also visited us along with her 11 month old son. She talked about how babies grow and develop and how doctors check on children’s health and developmental milestones.

We had great fun playing peek a boo and singing with her little boy! It was fascinating to see how babies grow and learn to become children and then adults.
