Introduce the topic by briefly asking the pupils if they know what a cold is and talking through the symptoms.
Have they ever caught a cold or seen someone from their family suffering from a cold? Ask pupils how the cold made them feel.
Explain that you are going to show the pupils a website/some stories which will help them learn about how we
catch colds and how we can help stopping colds from spreading.
Introduce the topic by briefly asking the students who has ever had a cough and who has ever sneezed.
Ask them what causes sneezes and runny noses, explaining that hayfever is not the same as a cold.
Hayfever can cause sneezing, a runny nose and itchy and watery eyes but it is caused by an allergy to pollen.
Explain that the students are now going to find out more about colds and germs and how they are spread,
with Nathan Noseblow and Suki Sneeze.
Sometimes the classroom becomes a place full of children coughing and spluttering all over each other.
And in the interests of classroom health and hygiene, it’s worth taking time out to remind children how to
blow their noses correctly. This can be done in a fun and friendly format with the following material,
so that no one child is singled out.
Introduce the topic by briefly asking the pupils why it’s a good idea to stop colds and flu from spreading:
what might you miss out on if you’re not well? (Parties, school trips, treats, days out etc.)
Explain that the pupils are now going to find out how we can prevent colds from spreading, once more with Nathan Noseblow
and Suki Sneeze.
