Plus they have set up an experiment to support the NDNAs topic ‘Healthy body, Happy me’,  which starts w/b 18th April. All of the children are attempting to grow bacteria on slices of bread! One slice of bread  has been handled by very dirty hands, one which has been handled by hands washed in water only and the third has been handled by hands which have been washed in warm, soapy water. Everyone is avidly  watching and waiting to see what develops and link this to the importance of good hand washing
All of the activities sound like great fun which is the best way to learn …… through play !
