  • Why do animals have different types of teeth?
  • What does sugar do to our teeth?
  • How do we digest food?




What kind of animal do you think this is? Why do think this?

What do you think it might eat? Why do you think that?

Egg Experiment

The children were curious about how different sugary drinks affect their teeth. We used boiled eggs and a variety of drinks including cola, energy drinks and squash. We observed over time the effect the sugar had. Please see the photos and read the extract of a child's investigation.



To show all the knowledge we had learnt we then wrote a diary entry as the Tooth Fairy. Please read some of our amazing writing.
