Friday 22nd May - A Case of Toothpaste


1892 - Dr Washington Sheffield invents the toothpaste tube. 

In the late 19th century, lots of companies made toothpaste products that came in jars. It was common for a family to have one jar of toothpaste in which they would all dip their brushes. Dr. Washington Sheffield formed a company for oral care while his son was in Paris. It was his son that noticed artists using collapsible metal tubes for paints and inks. He thought about putting the toothpaste in a similar containers. Afterwards, they unveiled the first toothpaste tube which was called Dr. Sheffield’s Creme Dentifrice.

You have made it to half term! Enjoy a week's holiday - you deserve it! Well done for all the hard work you've done. You can feel proud of yourselves!


We will not be setting daily tasks next week, as we thought everyone needed a holiday! However, if you do want things to do during half term, there are plenty of ideas on the year group pages. There is a brand new folder of art activities to try, there are some additional ideas in the creative writing folder, and there are the STEM fairy tale fun activities to try too (link below). 


Have a lovely holiday. We will be back after half term!
