As part of Lower Key Stage 2’s latest project on how we can teach others about staying fit and healthy, children were given the wonderful opportunity to hear from a school parent, Mrs Young, a dental hygenist, who spoke to them about how to keep their teeth healthy, what food’s to try to avoid and the correct way to brush our teeth!
Some brave volunteers even had their teeth disclosed which can indicate where they are brushing well and which areas could need some more attention. All of the children thoroughly enjoyed the visit.
Check out below for some amazing pictures from the event.
What did the children think?
A child from Oak Class said, “I liked when Mrs Young put the dye on our teeth; it showed all of the areas we can brush more!”
A child from Silver Birch said, “I loved learning about the different types of teeth and how different types of toothbrushes help our teeth.”
A child from Rowan Class said, “I loved watching the dye go onto their teeth; I really also liked finding out how to look after our teeth!”
We would like to give a huge thank you to Mrs Young for your generosity of time and knowledge with our children!
