Hand washing

On 29th January Heather and Julia came to visit us to teach us all about the importance of hand washing.  We learnt:


  • Good hand washing contributes to reducing illnesses and how they or others may become ill from ineffective hand washing.
  • The key times hands should be washed.
  • How quickly and how far germs can spread.
  • How to wash hands effectively using good techniques.


Our parents, grandparents and carers came and joined in the mini workshop after school.  We taught them how to wash their hands properly.
