April 18th – 22nd

Anther busy week ahead in The Children’s House!! We will be learning all about teeth as our topic is dental hygiene, so we will be talking about the importance of dental hygiene and why we look after our teeth – and discussing what might happen if we didn’t do so. We will then be examining our giant tooth model (quite scary!!), and doing an experiment, as well as a puppet show at the end of the week.

We had a great time last week looking at land and water animals – with classification of vertebrates and invertebrates thrown in for good measure –  and very interesting discussions on why some animals are becoming endangered or have become extinct, with the children questioning the need for hunting….sometimes young children just get to the heart of the matter in a very direct and simple way.

Brush Your Teeth (tune of Row Your Boat)

Brush, brush, brush your teeth, brush the germs away,
Happy, healthy teeth you’ll have by brushing every day!
Floss, floss, floss your teeth, floss the germs away,
Happy, healthy teeth you’ll have by flossing every day!
