As part of Health and Wellbeing Week, Year 4 visited the doctors' surgery in the village and learnt about the work they do to keep us all healthy.

Mrs. Barber and Dr. Spark talked to us about immunisations and vaccinations. We learnt about the polio vaccine and were really lucky to have some personal stories from residents in Wrenbury Nursing Home about their memories of getting the vaccine. We know the vaccine can't have tasted very nice because everyone spoke about the sugar lump they had with it (though it didn't seem to help!)

A lot of children remembered getting vaccinations or their little brothers and sisters getting them, but it was surprising to learn that older people get immunised too, for diseases like flu and shingles. We learned how these work to build up our immune system and how they help stop other people getting the disease, which is why you don't hear about people getting polio anymore in this country.

Year 4 had lots of excellent questions for Dr. Spark and Mrs. Barber too — some excellent exploring from our ACHIEVE behaviors going on. We can't wait to share our learning with the rest of the class and parents on Friday.
