PLAQUE DISCLOSING TABLETS
As part of our topic we have been learning about all about teeth. We have learnt about the different types of teeth, their function and why it is important to look after our teeth properly. For an investigation the whole of Year 4 used plaque disclosing tablets to see how plaque can still be on our teeth, even after we have brushed our teeth. The children really enjoyed this investigation and loved to see what their teeth were like, a lot of them were pleasantly surprised! The children all brushed there teeth before taking a plaque disclosing tablet. Take a look at the before and after pictures below!
In maths today, we were looking at problem solving. The children worked together in pair to complete the challenge, using manipulatives to help them. Though the problem initially looked easy, it was soon apparent that it was a little bit tricky than we anticipated. However, all the children tried really hard and persevered, until they found multiple solutions. We had some great mathematical thinking and discussions, the children were looking carefully at the patterns created and even thought about how the same solution could be presented in different ways.
