We have been learning about the human body and how some of the human organs work. We have also been talking about our teeth and how to look after them. We organised a visit from a support worker from Child Smile to come and talk to the children about oral hygiene. Her name was Ann and she was lovely, friendly and very approachable. Ann spoke to the children about how unhealthy sugar and sugary drinks are for our teeth. She showed them some pictures of children’s teeth who looked very unhealthy. The children had an opportunity to brush some cuddly toys’ teeth using real brushes and other children were able to use the small dentist mirror to check if their friends have done a good job brushing. Ann told the children how long to brush for and how many times to do it per day.
