Year 4 have been studying teeth in class and it so happened that one of their parents works in dentistry and had the time to come in and work with the children to teach them how to keep their teeth healthy and clean.
They learnt that plaque is a bacteria that loves sugar, so it’s best to have sugary drinks during a meal. They learnt how to brush their teeth properly and they took disclosing tablets (see photos below). So it’s twice a day – after breakfast and just before bed.
Everyone was really involved in this lesson and we thank Anna for coming in to share her expertise with us.
