Last week we were thinking about

REAL-LIFE SUPERHEROES.

What did we mean by this?

Can you remember any of them?

 

Today we are going to think about

dentists.

 

Do you think a dentist is real-life superheroes?

 

They are not quite like the superheroes that we learnt about last week.

We can't call 999 for them to come to the rescue.

BUT

They do help us to stay healthy which is very important. 

 

Do you know what happens at the dentists?

Have you ever been to the dentist?

 

Watch this video about the first time that Ava went to the dentist...

CBeebies - My first visit to the Dentist

Keeping our teeth clean and healthy is very important.

 

Talk to your grown-up about how you keep your teeth healthy.

 

Today I would like you to sequence the pictures to show

how you brush your teeth

(the link to the pictures is below)

There isn't really 1 right way of ordering them, just talk about why you have chosen that order.

 

if you are unable to download these pictures or print them out

- make a poster about how to brush your teeth, adding captions like discussed below

Pictures to sequence - brushing your teeth

Then...

Write a caption to match each picture

 

Remember to carefully plan your ideas and think about the sounds that you can hear and write those down. Your grown-up can write next to your writing what you wanted to say when you have finished.

(we don't expect it to be perfect. You're only 4 and 5 and you're all learning how to write at your own pace. Just give it your best try  )

 

e.g. Brush the front of your teeth - may be written as - bush v fut ov yr tif

 

They won't be able to hear some sounds yet, or know how to write some... Do help them to think about words that they 'should' be able to write, although this will be different for different children, words like 'the' and 'of' are tricky words that we are learning in FS

 

Just encourage them to think for themselves -

this is how they will get more confident in having a go and not worrying about 'getting it wrong'!

 

 

Remember all children work at different levels, some will hear a few sounds, others will make marks and tell you what it says others may be writing some simple words and sentences.
