Germs, germs, germs!

Ash class has been exploring germs this morning. Ms Schofield started by touching everyone with glitter so they could see how germs spread. The children then took part in three activities:

1. Children chose either milk and glitter or water and black pepper. They put a finger into the liquid and talked about the ‘germs’. They then chose a squirt of antibacterial or non-antibacterial soap, put their finger back into the bowl and watched the ‘germs’ disperse. Why not try this at home.

2. Children looked at pictures of hands. They talked about which ones they thought were clean or not clean. We talked about not being able to see germs so even the clean hands might have germs on them.

3. When the children came into school this morning they were all asked to touch a piece of bread. In groups they repeated this and predicted what might happen to the bread. We will keep you updated! At home look at the photo and make your own predictions.
