Visit to Dentist - Thursday 28th January 2016 

As part of work on teeth, Alexia Chandler from the Courtyard Dental practice in Dunchurch agreed to let Year 3 visit her in her surgery. The children were able to ask lots of questions and learn more about the role dentists play in helping us keep our teeth healthy. The visit hopefully calmed any fears that some of the children may have!
