Year 3 simulated an earthquake rescue.
by Daniel Burke
Milepost 2 worked together to enact a rescue mission. Year 4 acted as our earthquake victims and Year 3 came to the rescue! This activity took a lot of preparation from the children of year 3. They decorated their classroom like a medical centre and constructed mock replicas of famous skyscrapers. The children practiced for their roles and learned the appropriate terminology. It was a Thursday afternoon and Year 4 were going about their business when an earthquake struck the after school room. Toby G and Richard used musical instruments to represent the noise caused by the quake. Mara, Ema, Sebik and Mattia worked in A and E to ensure survivors were saved. Tobi P and Tom worked the reception to ensure everyone received name tags. Teri, Lara and Elvie worked in triage to assess the injuries. Overall it was a massive success. We had no casualties and the children got an insight into the hectic scenes of an earthquake rescue. A good way to start our Active Planet topic.
