How clean are your teeth?

In Science, the children used disclosing tablets to highlight the plaque on their teeth as you can see from the photos below! They then identifed the best strategies to brush their teeth and assessed how they need to remove plaque from their teeth better. They brought their toothbrushes and toothpaste from home, using mirrors to help, they then cleaned their teeth. Children soon realised how much brushing this took and were amazed to see their tongue still bright pink!! Why was this?


Skilled Artists

We have been refining so many skills during our recent art lessons. We have furthered our ability to create compositions which have then helped inspire our drawings. We have also gained confidence with using different types of pencils to create different marks and add shading to our artwork. More recently we created our own wax resist drawings.
