Glow Boxes- Hand Washing 🧼

Today, as part of Healthy Lifestyles week, we looked at the technique we should use when washing our hands and when we should wash our hands.  We learnt that it is important to wash your hands before eating, after going to the toilet, after touching animals, after sneezing and after playing outside.  We then watched a short video about how to wash our hands properly to ensure all of the germs have been washed away.

To test how well we wash our hands we then used the hygiene glow box to see if any germs were left on our hands after washing them.  We learnt that we all need to wash around our nails a bit better!

🏅 Paralympian Danielle Brown Visits 🏅

Newdale were very lucky to have a special visitor in school today. Paralympic and London 2012 gold medallist, Danielle Brown. She has competed in the Paralympic Games winning gold medals in Beijing and London and has also won medals shooting in the able bodied category including the Commonwealth Games. She taught us all about the importance of never giving up and believing in ourselves! Danielle’s visit also ties in perfectly with our new topic for this half term which is The Olympic Games.
