Living and Learning – Vampire cough and sneeze

Monday 19 February 2018
You’re just about to sneeze or cough but you don’t have a tissue. What should you do?
Year 2 have been discussing why we don’t cover your mouth and nose with our hands.  If you sneeze or cough into your hands (and then fail to wash your hands straight away), you’ll only be spreading colds and flu germs on everything you touch.
So what is the better option?  Use your sleeve.
Cover your nose and mouth with the material near your elbow and do the vampire sneeze and cough.  The germs will soon dry out and die.

Well done to Saahir who we spotted using this technique this morning without prompting.
