When we planned our topic of people who help us we had asked to learn about doctors and nurses. On Wednesday Mrs Holford came to see us. She told us about her job and her special bag and what she had in it.
She showed us how to put bandages on our ankles.
Then she talked to us about germs. We did a ketchup experiment where we had to put sauce on our hands and shake hands with our friends. When we saw how far the sauce went round the circle we saw how easily our germs spread.
After she taught us the washy washy clean song.
We learnt how we need to wash all parts of our hands with soap to get rid of all our germs. After playtime we did another experiment with the light box and germ soap. We had to put on the germ hand wash and see it all over hands. Then we had to go and wash our hands like we had learnt to see if we could wash the germs away. Some of us did very well, some of us had to go back to the toilet and wash our hands again!
To finish our afternoon Mrs Holford answered our questions that we had prepared for her. We learnt a lot today and some of us now want to become Nurses.
Let’s just hope we all remember to wash our hands properly.
Thank you Mrs Holford 🙂
