Brush Your Teeth Challenge 2021
As part of our topic 'People Who Help Us', the children learned all about dentists and dental hygiene. The children were able to talk about the foods and drinks that are good for their teeth and the ones that are not so good! The children were able to talk about the role of dentist and how they help us. The children were provided with a challenge to brush their teeth twice a day, every day over a 2 week period. The children who completed the challenge received a certificate and 10 golden gems.
