The Three Billy Goats Gruff & Dental health week

This week in the nursery we have been reading the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff.

In the story there is a horrible troll who lives under a bridge. We used describing words to about what he looked like, then made trolls of our own.

In the story the troll was green. We didn’t have any green powder paint so we experimented with other colours and discovered that we need to mix blue and yellow.

Next we needed to add the trolls features. We used our scissors skills to cut out eyes, noses and mouths.

Look out! The trolls are very scary!

The story told us that the troll had stinky breath. We spoke about why he might have bad breath and what he could do.

We sorted food and drinks that are good and bad for our teeth. We discussed the importance of brushing every morning and every evening for 2 minutes.

We practiced brushing and used a fun Encanto timer.

Try the timer at home!

Please ensure your child has regular dental check ups and brushes twice a day using a pea sized amount of toothpaste.
