In Year 2 we are learning about Healthy Living. We have looked at the different foods we should eat and the importance of a balanced diet. We are learning the importance of keeping clean and had a special visitor come in. A local dentist showed us how to look after our teeth. The importance of how and when to clean your teeth... not forgetting the flossing!
To see the consequences of when you don’t look after your teeth we did an egg experiment. We put an egg in three types of different liquids: coke, milk, lemonade and water. This helped us see what can happen to our teeth if we drink some of these drinks too often and not brush our teeth. We loved seeing the results of our experiment. A lesson to us all - the importance of drinking water!
