Health Week in P.1/2 – Day 2

The sun was shining again this morning when Primary 1/2 did a variation of the “Walk a Mile” challenge! The children went on a mystery tour this time – in and out and round about the trees in the wooded area of the playground. They swished through the carpet of autumn leaves at the side of the school and stopped to sing “Ring o’Roses” round the Horse Chestnut tree. The children looked up through the branches at the sky and then gave the tree a hug before continuing on their journey. Then the class took part in a taster session of “Enjoy a Ball” in the school hall which they thoroughly enjoyed! Many thanks to Scott “Smelly Socks” MacKenzie who led the workshop. After break Primary 1/2 had a visit from Mrs Fyffe, a nurse, who told the children all about invisible germs. The children were shocked when Nurse Fyffe used blue paint and party poppers to demonstrate how germs spread so quickly and easily. (Your child will explain what happened!) Nurse Fyffe showed the children how to wash their hands effectiviely to avoid spreading germs. Many thanks, Nurse Fyffe, for your expert advice. We promise to take our time and keep washing our hands as long as it takes to sing “Happy Birthday”!
