| Year 2

Our children generated their own questions about teeth and then teachers used these questions to plan the learning.

We began by finding about the different types of teeth and the important job that each one has.

Some of the children are even remembering to say, (when they lose a tooth), ‘My incisor has fallen out’ or ‘My canine went to the tooth fairy last night!

The children had enormous fun constructing their own sets of teeth out of either Play Doh or card. They showed great attention to detail, with Elsie even remembering to leave a gap where one of her own teeth was missing!

The children moved on to learning about why teeth rot and the importance of brushing your teeth properly. They produced some colourful and eye catching posters to support their learning.
