Germs, Illness and Prevention

Today as part of our health education in PSHE we looked at how diseases are spread. 

We learnt that some diseases and illnesses are not contagious, such as cancer, allergies and diabetes, whereas others are spread on surfaces, some are airborne and some are transmitted through blood or saliva. We discussed some methods for prevention, such as handwashing before eating, sneezing into a tissue and coughing into our elbow. We also played a game to demonstrate how germs are spread and then a matching game to match up the illness with how it is spread/how to prevent it.
