How germs spread

Date: 11th Mar 2020 @ 3:14pm

In PSHE we’ve been looking at how easily germs can spread and how important it is to wash our hands properly. We put glitter on our hands to represent germs and then washed our hands. We found that lots of us still had glitter on our hands. We now know to wash our hands with soap and ensure we clean all parts of the hand.
