How often do you wash your hands?

In our cross curricular learning, P3 have been looking at hand washing and hygiene.

In science, we carried out an investigation where we learned how to compare results. In our groups, we passed a piece of bread around. We then washed our hands and passed another piece of bread around.  We made predictions about what would happen  and observed changes to the bread. Each day we were excited to see what was happening. The bread we passed around with dirty hands grew a lot more mould than the bread we touched with clean hands.

In ICT we learned how to take photos on the iPad and share these photos with other people using airdrop.

In health and well-being we have been learning how and why we wash our hands. Look out for our hand washing superheroes to help remind people in school to wash their hands.
