This week we will be exploring the role of the dentist.
We will be thinking about and discussing our own oral hygiene and think about the different things we may use to keep our teeth and gums clean such as tooth brushes, floss, tooth paste, electric toothbrushes, mouth wash and regular visits to the dentist.
We will explore healthy eating and drinking and how sugars and salts in our diet can affect our teeth and cause rotting and decay.
The children will have the opportunity to talk about different foods and drinks that are healthy and unhealthy.
Please find some interesting facts and wonderful activities on the Change4life website. This site aims to teach us about the importance of healthy eating and the different foods we can swap for a healthier diet.
