School nurses came to visit not only year two pupils but ALL pupils at Mill Hill in March.
Why you may ask?
Well, to raise awareness of the importance of keeping our bodies fit and healthy. This healthy roadshow was linked to the curriculum of science and PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) and got our pupils REALLY thinking!
The nurses posed lots of open–ended questions about four main areas:
- the importance hand washing
- the importance of dental care
- the importance and benefits of exercising
- the importance of eating a well–balanced healthy diet
This road show was very interactive and made learning fun! Fun! Fun!
Quotes from year two pupils:
“Eeeh, I didn’t know you should NOT wet your toothbrush with toothpaste before you brush your teeth! Now I know why. I’ll have to tell my Mam why.”
“Gor……. I can’t believe that magic machine could show us where the germs were on
the door handle – I’m going to wash my hands and thumbs properly now with soap.”
“I LOVED learning about the heart and I can’t believe it’s the size of my fist – that’s tiny! It must be really strong. I need to keep it strong by exercising.”
