Today Dental Nurse Helen Murphy came to our school to do dental workshops with the students.
We learned all about the structure and functions of our teeth, foods that are unkind to teeth and dental decay. We also got to work as sugar detectives by investigating the packaging of foods and drinks for hidden sugars. We were shocked at the sugar content of foods we considered healthy, such as raisins and yoghurts!
Helen demonstrated how to brush our teeth correctly and pointed out the areas that can easily be missed. She gave everyone a toothbrush so that we can put what we learned into practice every morning and evening!
