Today we are thinking about germs and how easily they spread. Mrs Grierson demonstrated how this can quickly happen by covering her hands in purple glitter then handing out the books as normal and going round the table checking books and talking to children one at a time about the task they had to do. Before the 10 minute timer went off everyone in class found purple glitter on their books, their uniform, their faces, their tables even their pencils! The 'germ' had spread really quickly and had affected everyone in some way. This made us think about how easily real germs can spread and why it is so important to wash our hands thoroughly many times each day.
