During this half term, our Cornerstones topic is "Burps, Bottoms and Bile" which is all about the digestive system!

In Science, we have looked at the types of teeth we have and their functions. After this, we used disclosing tablets, which showed us if we had any plaque on our teeth. This helped us to identify if we are missing any areas when brushing.

We have also been researching the sugar content in our favourite foods. From our results, we identified which foods to steer away from because they can be harmful to our teeth and cause tooth decay.  Following on from this, today, we set up a scientific enquiry to find out the affects that different liquids can have on our teeth.

We used eggs to represent our teeth as they both contain calcium. We then chose 6 different liquids to cover the eggs with, so that over time, we can observe any changes. The results will then show us the affects the liquids could have on our teeth and which ones are most harmful.

Please come back to our Blog page soon to find out the results from our experiment!

What a fabulous way of investigating tooth decay. I look forward to reading about your results.
