To begin our new science topic, focused on teeth and digestion we had a visit from Anne, a dental hygienist. She showed us just how important looking after our teeth is and what we can do to prevent tooth decay and unwanted trips to the dentist!

Several of the children took part in a ‘disclosing’ activity where they chewed a tablet filled with blue dye which revealed area which might have been missed when brushing our teeth. It was interesting to see the tiny places, mostly on the gum line, which children had missed with their tooth brush.
