Horrid HandsHave you got Horrid Hands?
Help your students to stop the spread of illnesses and become germ-busters. This interactive and engaging session is tailored for Year 1 – Year 6 and can be taught in a classroom setting or as an assembly to whole year groups.

The session includes opportunities for children to build on their existing knowledge of germs and areas of the science curriculum. An experiment will demonstrate how rapidly and easily germs are spread- there will also be suggestions for further classroom experiments. They will learn the science behind snot and easy habits they can adopt to keep themselves safe and those around them.

Students will also learn about the role of vaccines and how they are administered to keep us as healthy as possible.

NHS SuperheroesDo you know your NHS superheroes?
Our interactive “NHS Superheroes” lesson will explore a variety of clinical and non-clinical roles in the NHS. Students will learn how these roles help patients even if they never encounter the patients they are helping…secret superheroes!

During the lesson, students will follow a patient and their family on their journey. They will be able to draw inferences about characters’ feelings and make predictions regarding the plotline.

Students will be able to demonstrate their deeper understanding of the wide variety of roles within the NHS by choosing their own NHS superhero and composing a short explanation of the impact they have on patients. Appropriate use of conjunctions and adverbial phrases will be highlighted and encouraged whilst they children are composing their postcard. The finished postcards can be easily displayed in the classroom or used for further discussions between teachers and students.
