Dentist Visit – Monday 27th March 2017
In Science we have been learning about our teeth and the digestive system. On Monday 27th March, we were visited by Dr Zeltman from the Sailsbury Dentist Surgery in Teignmouth. He talked to us about the effects sugar has on our teeth. He also showed us how to brush our teeth properly; at least 2 minutes, twice a day! He gave us lots of information to help us develop our learning.
‘I have started using my teeth brushing chart already!’
‘We learned all about what plaque is. It’s the white stuff that builds up on your teeth.’
‘We learned that we have to clean the backs of our teeth, not just the front’.
‘We saw some photos of what could happen if you don’t look after your teeth.’
‘We learned that you shouldn’t brush your teeth really hard because it can make your gums bleed.’

Dress Up Day!
Year 3 spent the day dressed up in many different outfit. We all showed our sense of identity by choosing an outfit that we would enjoy wearing from skeletons to princesses and dragons to storm troopers.
The children in Year 3 have been learning the violin this term. They have been supported by Mr Deam who is a local violinist.
