TEETH DAY – January 2019
At the beginning of term we held a whole school ‘Teeth Day’. The aim of the day was to emphasise the importance of dental hygiene i.e. eating healthily and looking after your teeth. We talked about why it is so important to brush your teeth and visit the dentist. Several of classes practised cleaning their teeth for two minutes and realised it was a lot than they thought! Lots of other fun activities happened too including estimating the amount of sugar in different types of food.
Year 1 were shocked to discover how much sugar there is in ketchup and Ribena!
There were also teeth quizzes, instructions written about how to brush your teeth, bar charts showing the sugar in foods, ‘How to Keep your teeth healthy’ posters, egg shell experiments to see what liquids damage enamel the most and teeth made out of playdough!
It was a great day and I think we all came away realising how important it is to think about what we eat and drink and the importance of keeping our teeth and gums healthy.
