Pupils are learning how to clean their hands in five easy steps as part of an innovative hand hygiene education programme.
The programme - fronted by animated character Professor Albie - teaches pupils how to clean their hands in a fun and interactive way, helping them learn life-long skills.
The resource, created by the Albany Healthy Schools programme, includes a teacher’s guide, lesson plans and quiz sheets, created by educational experts.
Each resource is targeted at a different age group and helps children to learn about the importance of correct hand cleaning and the science behind germs and illness.
Dr Ron Cutler, deputy head of bio-sciences at Queen Mary, University of London, said: “School hygiene has never been more important. Without appropriate hygiene management and education systems, viruses can easily take hold and spread throughout a school, demonstrated with the outbreaks of swine flu and, more recently, the winter vomiting virus.”
