Please Note: The clips and reading material today may contain content which is sensitive to your child, given the current climate. It is therefore advised that clips and web pages are watched, read and discussed together with an adult. Watch and listen to the song: ‘Microorganisms’ by Peter Weatherall – making notes as you watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tHvHww1tNnA&list=RD1 RIlYjxfFmo&index=2
After listening to the song, read this webpage about microorganisms and make notes: https://www.theschoolrun.com/homework-help/microorganisms
Now watch the short BBC clip: ‘Seeing the bacteria carried on hands’ here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z34 rkqt.
You task - Imagine that the government have asked you to create a leaflet for children about microorganisms and the importance of washing hands. Using what you have read and watched today, design a leaflet suitable for children your age. Make sure your leaflet is informative yet attractive to children by considering what vocabulary you use and thinking carefully about your layout. You may also want to include images/pictures to present some of the information. Extra information and ideas for how you may choose to present your leaflet can be found here (Click ‘Get a closer look’ to view the book): https://www.dk.com/uk/book/9781465470287-the-bacteriabook/
