Posting letters

In our geography lessons we have been learning about Newcastle upon Tyne. As part of our learning we have been learning our addresses by heart, to help with this we wrote ourselves a letter. Today we walked to the post box to send our letters to our homes.

Germs germs germs

In Science we have been learning about keeping healthy, today we learned that one part of being healthy is to keep ourselves clean. We took part in an investigation which helped show us how quickly germs can spread, we each put our hands in glitter and then shook hands with two other people and we ended up with lots of different colour glitter on our hands which showed us how easily germs can spread. Then we learned that to make sure we had clean hands with no germs on we had to use soap and hot water to wash our hands clean. It was quite tricky getting all the glitter off our hands but with using lots of soap we were able to wash all the glitter off our hands.
