The Nursery children have been learning all about Bonfire Night. They have been learning the story of the ‘Gunpowder Plot’ and they have enjoyed making sparkling fireworks pictures as well as using instruments to make sound that fireworks make. We also discussed the Bonfire Night safety rules.
This week we also have been learning about our teeth and why and how children can keep their mouth healthy. We have included basic teaching of oral hygiene practice which is applicable within Physical Development Health and Self-care.
During Early Years’ Foundation Stage, a child’s first experiences with oral health can impact on the rest of their life. It is equally vital to continue to ‘normalise’ dental visits and put them at ease with the role of a dentist as a person they can trust.
