We examined models of dinosaur teeth and compared them to the model of human teeth. Then we made our own dinosaur teeth from clay - we might even make a dinosaur teeth necklace when we paint them as soon as they dry!
We have been learning all about teeth - how they help us with our speech as well as biting and chewing; the four types of teeth (incisor, canine, premolar and molar); the parts of teeth (enamel, dentine, pulp, crown, root, etc); revising the importance of brushing our teeth and even reading a tooth-themed poem!
We were so lucky to have a visit from Community Garda Darragh as part of Road Safety Week. He spoke about so many important things include - how to wear a seat-belt properly (shoulder to hip); how to cross the road safely; why we need to wear cycling helmet and high-vis vests and lots more. Thanks Garda!
We are really enjoying learning about the heart - we have discovered so many interesting facts about! We conducted an experiment to see what happens to our heart beats when we exercise - we listened to our heart rates while sitting, standing, jumping and running. We realised that our hearts beat a lot faster when we get up and move!
