In September two of our assemblies focused on germs and the importance of washing our hands when we go to the toilet and before we eat our food. Because we can’t see germs, children think they aren’t there.
At the start of September, we carried out a whole school science experiment using bread. Mrs Braby demonstrated this and organised the display. We took three slices of bread and placed them into labelled plastic bags and displayed these in the hall for everyone to see and keep looking at for changes over the next few weeks.
Look what happened!
After 3 weeks we could easily see a difference between the 3 slices of bread. Bag 3 – Dirty hands’ is almost black with bacteria!
The message to wash our hands before having our lunch was made very clear by this simple experiment.
