Teeth in Year 4

Published on Monday 11 June 2018 by Mrs Marsh.

To kick off our new science focus about the digestive system we are first exploring teeth and eating. We learned about the different types of teeth and their functions. Using mirrors, we investigated our own teeth and counted how many we had and if any were missing. Then in groups, we made our very own teeth models out of play dough. This required teamwork by modelling the different types of teeth in terms of their shape and locating their position.
