Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

What a Germy Week!

This week we looked at germs! We were very keen to have this lesson because of all the coughs and colds we have been getting in this rainy weather.

Germs! What do we know about germs? We know that germs are spread through the air and by touch. There are lots of different germs that look and act differently.


We put ‘germs’ on one hand and then shook our friends’ hands. This showed us how germs spread when we don’t wash our hands. It was GROSS!

Luckily for us, we had learnt how to wash our hands thoroughly and washed away all of the germs.

We also explored how germs spread during the Great Plague. We looked at the potential suspects that could have spread it and using the facts guessed what it could be. Only three of us had guessed that rats were the culprits! The rest of us were shocked.
