Why work with us?

3 The importance of hand hygiene
Correct and effective hand washing is one the most important lessons our children should learn. Hand washing is one of the most important ways of controlling the spread of germs in schools. Young children are particularly at risk of catching and spreading gastro-intestinal and respiratory infections. It is vital that young children are taught the benefits of correct hand washing as early as possible. Note the Reference in National Curriculum PHSE: “Developing a healthy, safer lifestyle”

13 What are Germs? Key Stage 1 Estimated teaching time 30 minutes
Curricular areas Science (scientific enquiry), Art and Design (exploring and developing ideas). Objectives 4. Explain that there are many types of germs and that different germs can make us ill , but some are good for us. Children will learn that there are many varieties of germs, such as viruses and certain bacteria. Some are good but some can make us ill. 5. Ask the children where do they think germs live. Write their answers on a board or flipchart. To create an understanding that germs are smaller than the eye can see. To create an understanding of where germs live. 6. Go on to explain that germs are nearly everywhere Suggested Sequence 7. Show children the images of germ types, discuss the shapes (balls, spirals, etc) and explain the illnesses they can cause. You could link this with an art competition. Ask if anyone knows what germs are? 2. Ask how big they are? 3. Inform children that germs are tiny bugs, also called micro-organisms and microbes. (Explain that we can’t see them with our eyes, we need the help of a microscope, which acts like a giant magnifying glass. If possible show the children a microscope or a magnifying glass.)

14 Healthy Hands, Healthy School (part one)
Key Stage 1 or 2 Estimated teaching time 1 hour (total time for parts one and two). 3. Begin a discussion about why it is important to have good hand hygiene . Encourage children to think beyond the obvious. For example, staying healthy means that children can stay in school, where they can learn, see their friends, play sports and so on. Curricular areas: PSHE (preparing to play an active part as citizens; developing a healthy, safer lifestyle), Science (scientific enquiry). Objectives Children will learn the importance of good hand hygiene. 4. Remind children that we can’t see germs, ask children to pretend that the pieces of glitter are germs. To demonstrate to children how germs can be spread by contact with other pupils. 5. Over a bucket, put a small amount of glitter on the hands of a few children. Ask them to rub their hands together to spread the glitter easily. Materials Glitter, Paper Towels, Bucket, Soap, Water Suggested sequence 6. Then ask the children to shake hands with other children, who in turn shake hands with others. Repeat this process until all class members have shaken hands with at least five other children. 1. Involve the children in a discussion about the importance of hand hygiene. Ask children why it is important to wash hands, when we need to wash our hands and what can happen if we do not wash our hands. 7. Discuss with the children how many of them have some of the "germs" on their hands? How did they get there? 2. Write down the children’s responses on the board and generate discussion to fill in any obvious blanks. How might we be able to get rid of them?

15 Healthy Hands, Healthy School (part two)
Key Stage 1 or 2 Estimated teaching time: 1 hour (total time for parts one and two). Group 3 Ask this group to try to remove the glitter with warm water and soap. Curricular areas: PSHE (preparing to play an active part as citizens; developing a healthy, safer lifestyle), Science (scientific enquiry). Write down the children’s responses on the board to the following questions: Objective :To demonstrate the best method of washing hands in order to remove germs. 3. Ask each group what happened when they tried to get the glitter off their hands. Did they get all the glitter off? Which group got the most off? Materials: Glitter, paper towels, bucket, soap, water Suggested sequence 4. Explain that washing your hands with warm soap and water is the best way to remove germs from our hands. Ask the children to try to wipe away the glitter (germs) on their hands. They won’t be able to do this. 5. Ask the children to demonstrate their hand washing technique. 2. Split the class into 3 groups. Group 1 6. Then show children the correct hand washing technique using the poster. Ask this group to try to remove the glitter using a dry paper towel. 7. Get all the pupils to wash the remaining glitter off their hands using the correct technique. What did they do differently? Group 2 Ask this group to try to remove the glitter using only plain water.

16 Fun Facts (part one) Background information
Micro-organisms cannot be seen by the naked eye (micro means tiny and organism means a living creature); many hundreds of them would fit on the full stop at the end of this sentence. They are found everywhere, in soil, air, water, on our skin and in our tummies. Most of the time when they are in the right place the majority of micro-organisms are not harmful to people and often do a lot of good such as breaking down waste and making bread. We couldn’t live without them. Micro-organisms can be spread: By direct contact such as holding hands then getting into our body through cuts or breaks in the skin. Through the air when we sneeze, cough, talk or sing. Bacteria: are single cell organisms. The human body is home to millions of bacteria, most are friendly and are found almost everywhere on our body, but some can cause diseases such as tummy ache and feeling sick. They come in four general shapes of: rod, comma, round and spiral. By indirect contact as micro-organisms are present on toys, toilet handles, etc. Viruses: are the smallest type of germ that is known and can cause infections such as colds and flu, measles, and chickenpox. Viruses are even smaller than bacteria and need to live inside Fungi: includes mushrooms, like the ones you eat, moulds and yeasts. Some are parasites and can live on you such as ringworm. cells to reproduce and spread infection.

17 Fun Facts (part two) Typically there are between 10,000 and 10 million
bacteria on each hand. Damp hands spread 1,000 times more germs than dry hands. The number of germs on our fingertips doubles after we use the toilet. Bacteria 40 million years old have been extracted and successfully grown from a fossilised bee. In 1918 more people died from the influenza virus (approximately 30 million) than died in the First World War (10 million). Bacteria double their number every 20 minutes. Children can be asked to calculate how many there are after 1, 7 and 24 hours. When we cough germs can travel about 3 metres if we do not cover our nose and mouth with a handkerchief . Almost one million bacteria can be created by one person in a school day. Studies show only about 70% of people wash their hands after using a public toilet.

20 Why Washing Our Hands is Important
We need to wash away any germs on our hands. Germs are tiny bugs, also called micro-organisms or microbes. Germs are so small we cannot see them with our eyes. Germs are on most things we touch, and on all of us. We can spread germs when we touch things or we can pass them on to our friends Germs can give us upset tummies, colds and coughs. Germs can be washed off easily using soap and water – fun and easy to use

21 When to wash our hands Because of germs it is important to wash our hands… Before eating a meal or snack, or helping in the kitchen. After using the toilet. After touching or feeding animals, including our pets. After touching rubbish or anything dirty. After blowing our nose, coughing, or sneezing. After school. After playing outside. Before going to bed. At home, at school, and everywhere we go.

22 How to wash our hands We should use soap and water
There are many soaps to use to keep our hands clean. One of our favourite soaps is a foaming soap, it smells and feels nice Ollie keeps the soap for us in a dispenser like this one. To use the dispenser we hold one hand underneath and press the dark green button with the other hand. Have fun with the bubbles!

2. Push Ollie’s button and put one quirt of foam soap on to your hands 3. Rub the front of your hands together, making sure that…. 4. …you rub in between your fingers and thumbs 5. Rub the back of each hand with the front of the other

24 How To Wash Your Hands 6. Rub your fingertips on the front of each hand 7. Rub each thumb with your other hand 8. Rub each wrist with your other hand TIP: The length of time to wash hands properly is as long as it takes to sing Happy Birthday twice. 9. Wash off all the soap Make sure that there aren’t any soap bubbles left on your hands 10. Then dry your hands with a paper towel

25 When we have learnt how to wash our hands properly Ollie awards us this certificate and badge!
