Read the Paramedic book again. Remember the questions you came up with to ask a paramedic yesterday? If you need some inspiration, try using any of these:


Do you enjoy your job? Why/Why not?

What is your favourite part of your job?

Do you prefer working a day shift or a night shift?

What equipment do you need to carry every day?

What kinds of emergencies do you attend?

Is it difficult helping a patient in the back of the ambulance when it is driving along?


Today you are going to be answering these questions in role. This means you will pretend you are a paramedic. Practise with your grown up first – ask them one of your questions and see how they answer as if they were a paramedic. Then it’s your turn. Your grown up should ask you 2 or 3 questions to give you a practise at answering like a paramedic. You will need to remember what you have learnt about their job already. You can always refer back to the book if that helps. If you don’t know the answer, you will need to make a sensible guess based on what we know.


Independent task:  Pick 2 or 3 of your questions (or from above) and write your answer as a paramedic. You will need to use “I” and your sentences must have capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. You might even need an exclamation mark (!) if what you are saying expresses a stronger emotion (surprise, joy, shock, anger etc).

Extra challenge: Can you extend your answers to include a connective: because, so, and, but?
