Teddy Bear Hospital Visit Year 2!

We had a wonderful visit from the Teddy Bear Hospital this afternoon! The Teddy Bear Hospital is made up of medical students from Newcastle University. We took part in four different activities: healthy eating and exercise, inside my body, sensory play and what to expect at the doctors or hospital. We arranged the internal organs inside an apron of the body, learnt a little bit of sign language and tried some activities blind folded, to test our senses. We also had a look at some doctor’s equipment including stethoscope, heart rate monitor and blood pressure monitor.
