Washing Hands – Covid-19


This week we shared the following video with the children from the BBC:

The main points raised in the film were:

For most people who catch Corona-virus it will be mild. Those at most risk are the elderly and those with underlying health conditions such as asthma.

  1. Wash your hands more – washing hands should be for at least 20 seconds
  2. Avoid touching eyes, nose & mouth – this is obviously easier said than done but we should all try to avoid touching these areas where possible
  3. Catch coughs and sneezes – at school we have increased our supply of tissues but it would be really helpful if every child could come to school prepared with a pack of disposable tissues; if tissues aren’t to hand then cough or sneeze into the crook of the elbow
  4. Stay away from people who are ill – if you have been in contact with anyone with the corona-virus or visited one of the affected areas then please follow NHS 111 advice regarding self-isolation

Finally please reassure your children, as we have, that if they follow the advice the chances of catching the illness are very small indeed.
