Year 6 have been working tirelessly over the last few weeks in preparation for the Summercroft CDC (Centre for Disease Control). Parents, carers, families and friends were invited in on Wednesday to be disease detectives; they were given patient case studies and had to use the Summercroft CDC to try and diagnose the patient and suggest ways to prevent the disease from spreading. To do this, parents could circulate a range of stalls with information about Yellow Fever, Typhoid, Cholera, Influenza and the dreaded Ebola. The information on each stall included: maps of where the disease had struck, symptoms cards, timelines of previous outbreaks, infographics to show fatality rates and much more. Many groups also produced a news report on the iPads about the causes and spreads of the outbreaks and how to avoid catching them. Everybody who visited were great sports and almost all managed to identify their disease – some with a little more help than others! Thank you so much for your support during this term. We wish you all a restful and enjoyable Christmas break.
