Moat House Primary Completes Step 1 towards becoming a Sun Safe School - Sun Hats, Sunscreen & Role Models

Congratulations to Moat House Primary for issuing letters and Sun Safety leaflets to the parents / guardians of all of their children. Moat House Primary have also pledged to make sure that all children have access to Sun Hats & Sunscreen and that all teachers at the school will be good role models with regard to sun safety.

“Parents have been given the option to purchase sunhats for the subsidised price of £2. As soon as we know how many hats they would like we will place an order alongside the school order (we intend to have a stock for children whose parents don't purchase a hat of their own.”

“This was discussed at a recent staff meeting and teachers were all in agreement. They have been positive role models for a number of years already.”

Lesson Plan photo submitted by English School Of Kyrenia

“I have attached a selection of worksheets completed by our children. I again would like to send more evidence to you of other works and displays that have been created throughout our school, so I will send these via an email attachment. The display shown on the photo supplied was created by our student council for the early years and KS1 building. Year 6 were given specific tasks to complete like designing a sun cream bottle, writing instructions for use and also designing shaded areas for places where they thought it was needed. Years 1-5 completed various sheets as provided by yourselves. Everyone has taken part in these lesson plans and have all come away with a greater understanding of how to be sun safe and more importantly, why. It has been a super learning journey for us all!”
