    Year 1 Get Their Teeth into Their Latest Topic

    Local dentist and Kimbolton parent Mr Patrik Zachrisson visited Year 1 yesterday as part of their latest topic, 'Teeth and Healthy Eating'.

    Local dentist and Kimbolton parent Mr Patrik Zachrisson visited Year 1 yesterday as part of their latest topic, 'Teeth and Healthy Eating'.

    After introducing them to Brian the dinosaur (who has human teeth), Mr Zachrisson looked at the diets and teeth of different animals before asking the children about how and why they need to look after their own teeth.  A model of a human mouth with adult teeth waiting to replace baby teeth helped them understand what is happening to their own bodies. The children were thoroughly engaged by the discussion and asked some really good questions including, 'Why are adult teeth a different colour to baby ones?' and 'How do adult teeth grow?'. 

    Our thanks go to Mr Zachrisson for providing such a fascinating visit and also for his gifts of toothpaste and brushes, cleaning charts and stickers for each child.
