We’ve had a lot of children with coughs and sneezes this week (and teachers as well!). We’ve been talking about how to make sure we all stay as healthy as possible and don’t spread our germs. Everyone knew to put their hand over their mouth when they cough to make sure the germs don’t go all over our friends. We made a poster to remind us what to do.
Then we did an experiment with glitter and hand sanitiser. Corey called it ‘glitter sauce’. We had to pretend that the glitter was the germs and we wanted to find out what happened to those germs when we got busy in the classroom. There were lots of “urghs” and “yucks” as the germs were put onto the children’s hands.
Some children went straight to the toilets to wash their hands!
This meant we talked about how to wash our hands and we made some posters to put up in our toilets so that everyone remembers to wash all those germs off.
Have a look in our toilets and see if you can see our special posters.
*Do your children remember to wash their hands at home?
*Do they remember without you telling them?
*Can your child remember the special rhyme so they wash their hands properly?
