Staying Healthy - Colds and Flu

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 using tissues to guard against colds and flu.

Everyone gets a cold or the flu now and again. How can we guard ourselves against them and stay healthy? Coughs and colds spread easily. Often they spread quickly through the children in a school. It is very easy to catch a cold. Colds and flu are spread by bugs. So it is a good idea to try to stop the bugs from spreading. This quiz is about how we can guard ourselves against the bugs and stay healthy.
