Physical development and movement

Module 19

First aid in various situations

Activity 1:

To portray various situations in first aid through role-playing

[lo 4.5]


The learners are divided into groups of 4 - 6 and each group draws a slip of paper, on which a certain topic or situation has been written, from a bag. The topics include a variety of emergency situations, e.g. burns, snakebite, drowning, vehicle accidents and exposure to poisonous substances.

Under the guidance of the teacher the learners will portray the relevant emergency situation and then treat the “injured” correctly. First aid guides can be handed out to the learners.

After each situation has been completed, the teacher should point out to the learners what was done correctly or incorrectly and discuss how they handled the situation. It is important that the role-playing is not handled flippantly and that it is not seen as a big joke. The seriousness of such a

situation – something that they may have to handle in real life one day – must be emphasised.


Members of the local police or first aid association are usually more than willing to give a demonstration to the learners.


Learning outcomes(LOs)
LO 4
P HYSICAL D EVELOPMENT A ND M OVEMENT The learner will be able to demonstrate an understanding of, and participate in, activities that promote movement and physical development.
Assessment standards(ASs)
We know this when the learner:
4.1 applies relevant concepts in a variety of striking and fielding games;
4.2 demonstrates refined sequences emphasising changes of shape, speed and direction through gymnastic actions;
4.3 participates in a physical fitness programme designed to develop particular aspects of fitness;
4.4 performs rhythmic patterns of movement with co-ordination and control;
4.5 applies basic First Aid in different situations.
