We have become teeth experts in First Class.
We have learned the names of our teeth: incisors, canines, premolars and molars.
We made a KWL chart; writing down what we know about teeth, what we want to know and what we learned about teeth after our research and discussions.
We also discussed how we should brush our teeth. We know how important our teeth are and why we should look after them.
You should brush your teeth at least twice a day
Try not to eat too much sugary food/snacks/drinks
Drinking water and milk are both good for your teeth
Gently and thoroughly brush each side of every tooth and the gums. It should take about 3 minutes to do them all.
We also made our own teeth structures using plasticine! They look so real! Come and have a look.
We also had a visit from the school Dental Team on the 5th of February and they were very impressed with all our knowledge. They talked to us, allowed us to ask any questions and gave every child a little dental pack to bring home. We really enjoyed their visit.
