As well as learning about germ on our hands we've been thinking about the germs on our teeth called plaque. Today Mrs Grierson chewed a disclosing tablet to show us where the plaque collects on our teeth. Then she taught us how to brush our teeth starting with the outsides of our teeth then the inside using circular motions and brushing the gums too. Next we brushed the biting surfaces and finally the back of the front two teeth. Some children also told us that they brush their tongues too to make sure their whole mouth feels clean.

We were all given a toothbrush kit to take home and when our parents say we are ready to, we can brush our teeth under supervision.
