Children learned about the importance of brushing their teeth during British Science Week at the Toftwood Infant and Junior School Federation.

Youngsters took part in activities and carried out their own experiments.

Activities included making chemical reactions using baking powder and vinegar, testing what objects float and sink, investigating magnets, experimenting how to melt ice, learning about rocks and fossils, testing materials for UV protection and discovering the uses for Vitamin C.

Among the visitors to the school during the week was Anita Webster, from the NHS Oral Health Team, who spoke about the importance of brushing your teeth as well as making healthy choices when eating and drinking.

Kirsty Ponder, one of the science subject leaders at the federation, said: “It was another great success and all the children thoroughly enjoyed the different activities. We are hoping to inspire the next generation to work in these areas in the future.”
