P1 health and hygiene session

P1 have been learning about Health and Hygiene and the importance of cleaning their hands correctly. Amelie’s Mum joined us one afternoon recently and demonstrated, with special gel and an ultra violet light machine how we have germs on our hands. We all had a go at cleaning our hands thoroughly after she demonstrated the recommended way to clean them properly. Then we used the gel and ultra violet light machine again to see if any germs were still visable and guess what???… unfortunately most of us still had germs on our hands!! It just goes to show you how easily germs can be spread if we think our hands are cleaned thoroughly after washing – but sometimes they aren’t. Pupils learned that we all need to be extra vigilant with our hand cleaning to help prevent the spread of germs. See some photos of our session.
