Top Tips For Teeth

Dental decay in children can lead to pain, infections and difficulty with eating, sleeping and socialising. It is the most common reason children aged 5-9 are admitted to hospital.  Here are some ways to keep your child’s teeth healthy

  •  Children need help brushing their teeth until they are at least 7 years old to make sure they are brushing properly.  Helping them will introduce them to good dental habits that will last a lifetime
  • Brush teeth twice a day, once before bed and once at any other time that suits your routine.
  • Use fluoride toothpaste. Toothpaste that contains 1350-1500ppm fluoride gives teeth the best protection
  • Spit don’t rinse. Brushing teeth with toothpaste provides a protective layer of fluoride. If you rinse your mouth with water after brushing you wash it away. Spitting after brushing is fine.
  • Be Sugar Smart . Many children and adults are eating too much sugar. Visit the change 4 life website for suggestions on how to reduce sugar . www.nhs/change4life
  • Swap sugary drinks. Try sugar free, diet or no added sugar drinks BUT plain water or lower fat milks are best.
  • Register with a dentist. To find an NHS dentist visit www.nhs.uk/service- search
  • Visit your dentist as often as your dentist recommends. Talk to your dentist about fluoride varnish for your child. Remember dental care is free for children

Warm clothes and Wellington Boots

Dear Parent / Carer,

At school, we encourage the children to experience all weathers. As winter approaches and the weather is getting colder and wetter, we ask all parents to bring in wellington boots for their child to leave at school. We also remind parents to bring their child suitably dressed for the outdoors including a rain coat, hat, scarf and gloves.

Please clearly label all belongings to avoid things getting lost.

If you have any questions, please talk to your class teacher.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Yours sincerely,

EYFS Team
