Staying Healthy - Bugs

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Science for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with staying healthy and the importance of washing our hands to guard against bugs.

How often are you told to wash your hands? Do you always do it when you should? Why is washing your hands important? We have to wash our hands to stay healthy. In school, you will have learned about bugs. Bugs are too small to see - they are much smaller than mininbeasts. Not all bugs are nasty, but some are. Some bugs can make us ill. That’s why we need to wash our hands if we want to stay healthy.
