Today in Year 3 and 4, the children were lucky enough to have a visitor in from SMILES, which is part of the Community Dental Service. They took part in various activities which looked at: how to brush their teeth properly; the correct toothpaste to use and also which drinks contained more sugars than others. They were very shocked by how much sugar was found in some drinks that are often drunk by young children.

This afternoon in Year 3, the children looked at saliva and the role it plays in the digestive system. The children had to set up an experiment, where they put samples of food on a paper plate; one sample being coated in water and the other in saliva. They then had to look at the changes that happened with the food samples and think about why the saliva broke the food down more than just the water.

Well the exciting first day back continued this afternoon with the children in Year 3 looking at the importance of brushing their teeth properly.
