Health Week Work - Dentists and DT!

User Rating:  / 1

This week has been Health Week in school. Our focus in Year 1 has been Oral Health so we have been thinking about healthy teeth. As part of our work we had a visit from Whitehouse Common Dental Surgery. The staff talked to us about the anatomy of our teeth, how to brush our teeth correctly and about foods and drinks which are good and bad for our teeth based on how much sugar they have in them. It taught us a lot and we used the facts that we had learnt to help us write instructions in our English lesson for 'How to Brush your Teeth' too.

Later this week, we also linked our DT project to Health Week by using designing, making and evaluating skills to create a 'Rainbow Salad'. We used skills of chopping, grating and peeling and we had to think carefully about appearance, texture and flavour when designing. We tried to use patterns or pictures to make our salads appeal to a customer.
