We put bowls of water with toy animals in them in the freezer and some outside. When we checked on them today the ones from the freezer had turned to ice. We investigated why and tried to solve the problem, how do we get the animals out?
Today we had a visit from the School Nurses who taught us all about hand hygiene. We talked about why it`s important to wash our hands properly and when we need to wash them, before eating, after using the toilet, after playing in the sand or the play dough. They showed us the correct way to wash our hands so that tiny germs can`t hide anywhere and make us poorly. We put our hands under a special light and they glowed white where the germs were. Then we went to the toilets and washed our hands like the nurse had shown us, front, backs, nails, in between fingers and both thumbs. We were singing "Happy Birthday to you" so that we wash them for long enough.
When they were dry (we found out that it`s very important to dry your hands properly too!) we put our hands back under the special light machine. If there was any white on our hands, it showed us where we had missed when we had washed them. It was lots of fun! We would love to have a magic light box in school!
