Soltan Sun Safety Poster Competition
Do you think your child might like to enter the Soltan Sun Safety Poster Competition?
I am so excited to tell you about this. The prize is lovely and it is such an important issue.
Kids just love making posters, don’t they? I absolutely adored making posters when I was at school, did you? They are a great way for primary aged kids to absorb information whilst also being creative and having fun. Each and every time they write or draw something it imprints more strongly on their brain. Hence making a sun safety poster is a really smart idea.
This Sun Ready Challenge encourages primary school children to design a poster and slogan of how they stay safe and have fun in the sun. This may be putting on sun cream, wearing their best sunglasses or donning their favourite summer hat. It encourages them to come up with lots of ideas. My favourite sun safety tips are to drink lots of water and make sure you have some time in the shade too!
The winning design will be made into a poster and displayed in the winning child’s local area. The Sun Ready Challenge opened for entries on 29th April. All designs are to be submitted by 14th June. To enter visit: www.soltansunready.com/for-schools/competition
Soltan Sun Ready Schools
The competition is part of Soltan Sun Ready Schools, if you haven’t heard of it is a curriculum-linked programme that provides free teaching resources to teachers and pupils to help them stay safe in the sunshine. All of the resources can be used in school, as well as back at home so that parents can also practice sun safety behaviours with their children. Isn’t that cool (no pun intended.)
As well as the competition, the Soltan Sun Ready Schools resources include lesson plans, teachers’ guides, videos and homework activities that are available again to use this year. With fun, creative and engaging content, the materials include ideas for Sports Day, Summer Fairs, assemblies, science experiments, writing tasks and information for parents, all designed to educate about sun safety.
Do have a chat with your school and see if they are signed up to this as it is such a great resource it would be a huge shame for them to miss out. To download the fun, free, curriculum-linked resources go to: www.soltansunready.com/for-schools
Why sun safety is so important to teach to kids
Boots Soltan is the only leading brand that offers 5* UVA protection to prevent permanent skin care damage, and by educating young people aged 5-11 about how to stay safe in the sun, the campaign is ensuring that they adopt healthy sun safety tips at an early age that will last a lifetime. Sun safety needs to be encouraged in kids – they are outside so much and are so vulnerable they need to keep themselves as safe as possible. Did you know 23% of sun damage occurs before the age of 18. That completely shocked me!
We need to teach our kids these skills and to make sure that school reinforces the messages too, Soltan Sun Ready Schools is an awesome project for schools to be involved with and joined up messages from home too are really important.
Sun safety really matters.
The sun safety poster competition isn’t the only competition I have to tell you about today Do take a look at this other fab competition from Soltan where you could win yourselves an awesome prize too.
