Glitter germs

In today's session, we will be thinking about germs on our clothes; how they are transmitted onto our skin and clothes, and the need to keep clean. We will look into how we can stay clean by washing and changing clothes, and look at the functions of a washing machine. The children will work on creating a visual of a 'before and after' of their uniform following a visit to school. From this, we will explore other ways of keeping clean so that we can keep healthy.
