Year 2 learn about how to keep healthy

Year 2 have been learning all about keeping healthy in Science. We have found out about different food groups that we need to be healthy, the need for sleep and exercise.

This week we learnt about germs and how we can spread them to other people. We knew that we need to wash our hands carefully to stop them spreading but wanted to test the best way to wash our hands. We covered our hands in germs (glitter!) and some used a dry paper towel, some of us used cold water, some used hot water and some of us included soap. We all washed our hands for 30 seconds and then looked closely to see how many germs were left. We found out that we definitely need soap and water to clean our hands well!
