We've been very lucky to have a visit today from Miss Beaumont, a dentist, who spent a lot of time sharing her job with the children and explaining why we need to look after our teeth. As you can see from the photos below, the children were engaged in a variety of exciting activities, including exploring foods that contain sugar. They were most surprised by some of the outcomes - especially when they learnt that the recommended daily allowance of sugar for a child is 24g, which is the same as one Fruit Shoot! We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to Miss Beaumont who prepared a lovely session and gave up her time to visit Year 4. Hopefully the visit was also inspirational for the children, as Miss Beaumont used to be a pupil at Rushmere Hall School; so maybe one or two of the children in 4S will feel inspired to pursue a career in dentistry!
Each week we will update our blog with activities, pictures and comments on what we have been learning!
