The nurse visit to Reception

This week the school nurse came into Reception to teach us about washing our hands. We learnt about when and why we wash our hands, as well as what happens if we don't wash our hands properly. They showed us a special song to help us remember how to wash our hands thoroughly to get rid of all the germs. Next it was our turn to practise what we had learnt. The nurse gave us some special cream to rub into our hands. When we put our hands under the UV light we could see all of the germs! We washed our hands carefully with hand wash and inspected our hands again. They were so much cleaner!

"It was great for the children to be able to see the germs on their hands to fully understand the importance of personal hygiene''. Miss Millar, Reception teacher.
