Dental nurse visit

Reception had a visit from two Dental Nurses from Stradbrook Dental Practice – Ellen and Kelly. They spoke to the children about how to look after and brush their teeth and the children really enjoyed practising on the model teeth and the very cute and fluffy cuddly toys. Ellen and Kelly also showed the children a variety of food and the children were very good at identifying the foods which contained sugar and should be eaten or drunk in moderation to help keep our teeth healthy. A massive thank you needs to be passed on to Ellen and Kelly and Stradbrook Dental as each child received a goody pack with a new toothbrush, dentist mask, mirror and a colouring sheet. The children were buzzing after the visit and took a lot away from it.

We learnt a song: 

Brush brush brush your teeth, keep them nice and clean, if you don't brush your teeth, they won't shine and gleam.
