Thursday 2nd April

Today we are going to be looking at tooth decay. We will learn about what it is and how to prevent it.

First, watch this video from 3 minutes 35 seconds. We would have been doing this experiment in school if we could! You can give it a go at home if your grownup says it’s ok!


Then read the information on this website about how to look after your teeth:



Your task today is to put all the information you have learnt into a poster to inform younger children what tooth decay is and how to look after their teeth properly. Make sure you send me a picture – I can’t wait to see them!

Wednesday 1st April

Today we are going to look at different types of teeth and their functions (jobs).

I want you to watch this video and read the information on this website about different teeth. There is also a 'build the mouth' activity you can do on there (have an explore).

Use what you have read to label the picture below with either molar, premolar, canine or incisor. Have a look at your own teeth, can you see the different types? SAY CHEESE

You can print the picture off or have a go at drawing one yourself. Now, can you decide what teeth I am describing below?

These are the first teeth we grow, they have sharp edges and help us to bite into food.

Write a description like this for each of the other types.

Extension (this is optional) Humans have more dental problems than Animals - Kanthala Raghu ...

Animals have different teeth depending on their diet, think about how our teeth are different to a tigers. This video talks about different animal's teeth.

Design your own fantasy animal and think about its diet, is it a herbivore, carnivore or omnivore? Draw your animal's teeth according to its diet. If you do this activity I would love to see your creations, please e-mail them to me at mallen@birklandsschool.co.uk

Today we are going to start our science work on Teeth & The Digestive System!

Your task is to label the parts of the digestive system with these words: mouth, tongue, teeth, salivary glands, oesophagus, stomach, duodenum, small intestine, large intestine, gallbladder, pancreas, liver, rectum, anus.

If you have a printer you can print this image and label it. If not, have a go at sketching it. Don't worry about artistic perfection- the important thing is the labelling.
