This week Granny’s Teeth Visit St Peters C of E Primary School…                        We are a small school based in a beautiful village called Farndon, which is next to the River Trent near Newark in Nottinghamshire. We have a mixed Foundation class with 30 Foundation 2 and 8 Foundation 1 children and we absolutely love new experiences and adventures! On the day Granny’s teeth arrived they were brought to our class at the same time as a huge box which had also just been delivered. Obviously the children asked ‘what’s in those boxes?’ This led to us playing a game of what’s in the boxes? We worked in teams to … Read More

We found a box next to Mrs Walton-Wallace’s chair at fruit time. The box looked very old and we thought it was from a person who likes clothes because of the buttons. We carefully opened the box and were astonished to find a set of teeth. We thought they could belong to Mrs Holmes or Miss Bowles so we checked, but they did not. Next we thought about whom they might belong to. It could have been Santa Claus, an old lady, Jesus, God, an elf, a human, Little Red Riding Hood’s granny or even a snake’s teeth. We knew it was not a vampire because they did not have very pointy ones at the side. Phew! We went on … Read More

This week Granny’s Teeth were discovered by Reception 2 at Fiddlers Lane Primary School in Irlam… In Reception 2, we have been exploring Pirates Ohhh Arrrr! We began by reading a very interesting story ‘The Pirates Next Door’. We described the characters and the children were particularly interested in the character ‘Nugget’. They described her as ‘Cheeky’ and ‘Cute’. They were also drawn to ‘The Grandpa’ and questioned why he couldn’t leave his pirate ship? The following day the children discovered a special letter and a treasure map in Miss McIntosh’s magic jewel jar. It said…   But where would it lead to? We arrived at the outdoor sand pit only to find…. A pair of teeth!! The children were … Read More

Granny`s Teeth get a taste of Grayrigg! Granny`s teeth have chattered their way up to Grayrigg CE School in Cumbria this week and were a perfect fit for the magical mayhem and madness of our wonderful setting! Grayrigg is a tiny but perfectly formed rural school nestling in the lap of the Howgill fells just outside of Kendal. The Acorns are our Early Years and KS1 class and the jaw dropping moments of excitement and fabulous talk, writing, cooking and imaginative play generated by the teeth`s arrival were absolutely fabulous! We decided to give the class a problem to solve. I got a phone call from the tooth fairy to say that the Easter bunny had been sacked owing to … Read More
