The Reception classes have been visited by Mrs Lake, a school Nurse and parent volunteer, who has been teaching them to ‘be aware and wash with care’ in order to stop the spreading of germs!
The children took it in turns to check for germs on their hands using a special gel and light box and watched a demonstration on how to wash their hands properly.
After a quick trip to the bathroom to practise their new hand-washing technique the children checked their hands in the light box again to see how effective their hand washing had been. There were some surprises!
We would like to thank Mrs. Lake for taking the time to come and teach the Reception children the importance of good hand hygiene in a way that was both fun and informative!
