Welcome to Athelstan Community Primary School

We had a visit from Lauren who is a dental nurse at Finkle Hill surgery. She talked to us about healthy eating and which types of food and drink are good for your teeth. In groups, we sorted pictures under a good tooth and a bad tooth. We discovered that tomato sauce is actually bad for you in large quantities because it contains a lot of sugar! We then chewed purple disclosure tablets that highlight plaque on the teeth and Lauren showed us how to brush our teeth to make sure the fluoride worked effectively. We had lots of purple tongues!
