Brush…Brush…Brush and Spit!
This afternoon, Year Four investigated just how effectively they brush their teeth. After bringing in their toothbrushes (and brushing their teeth) they were asked to chew a plaque disclosing tablet in order to check out how much bacteria might be lingering on their teeth…
The children then brushed their teeth again using a mirror in order to remove the remaining plaque. We then reflected on the activity and learnt about ways we could improve our brushing, such as:
-brushing for 2 minutes!
-brush in circular motions and not to forget the backs of the teeth
-remembering to brush the tongue (to prevent bad breath)
A very memorable afternoon and we now have tooth brushing experts in Year 4! You don’t believe me? Ask them yourselves…
