Hand hygiene has been shown to reduce the incidence of absenteeism in schools as good hand hygiene reduces the spread of microbes and infection. This introductory lesson explores the importance of handwashing, depicting how microbes are spread through touch. This lesson perfectly complements the Health and Prevention element of the new RSHE curriculum for primary aged children.
In this session, students will learn how microbes can spread through touch and that the best way to remove microbes and prevent them from spreading is by washing your hands with soap and water.
