The children in Nursery have enjoyed learning about hygiene this week, the importance of staying clean, and how to do this. This discussion was supported by the story ‘Whiffy Wilson’.
We have particularly been looking at oral hygiene this week, which the children have enjoyed acting out role-play in our school dentist. We have looked at the different tools they use and the uniform they wear (to stay protected). We were lucky to have a visit from a local dentist. Julie came and spoke to the children about brushing their teeth and how to do it. The children liked teaching Julie our toothbrushing song to remind us to clean our gums and tongue.
This week we have also looked at which foods are healthy/unhealthy, and which have lots of sugar as they can be bad for your teeth.
