Dentist visit to classes 8 & 9

On Thursday 4th May 2017, a dental nurse from Claydon Dental Practice visited the children to talk about how to look after their teeth. They learnt about how to brush their teeth in the correct way, how long for and when the best time for brushing is. She also demonstrated the effects that sugar has on their teeth using a dirty penny and some Coke. The children were very knowledgeable when exploring food they should avoid and what happens to their teeth if bacteria is allowed to grow.

All the children were given a ‘goody bag’ to help them to put into practice what they had learnt.
