Brushing our teeth

Following on from our previous learning about daily habits (washing our hands, keeping our bodies clean and wearing clean clothes), we have been learning about the importance of oral hygiene. Children learnt that plaque is something that sits on your teeth and gums. Children learnt a good technique to brush their teeth in preparation for writing their instructions. Children already knew to brush their teeth twice a day for two minutes. The class were provided with a bamboo tooth brush to take home and keep.  Following on from our learning about plastics, we discussed why bamboo was an environmentally friendly option.
