Aistear – The Dentist


Ms. Kennedy’s Senior Infants have been very busy learning all about how to look after your teeth.

In Aistear play, they set up their very own dentist surgery. The receptionist welcomed the patients, the nurse got all the equipment ready and the dentist examined the patient’s teeth to check for any plaque or cavities.

They had lots of fun using mini marshmallows to count teeth. They learned all the different names of teeth and the jobs they do.

Most importantly, the children investigated how to take care of their teeth. They found out that healthy food is kind to our teeth and it is important to brush your teeth in the morning and at night.

The children are very excited and looking forward to a visit from ‘Mighty Mouth’ who will present the children with a special award for learning all about how to take care of your teeth.
