We're going on a shade hunt

Ages 4 - 7


a) Ask the class why we need to be careful in the sun. Discuss how we can stay safe from the sun during playtime by finding shade.


b) Walk around the playground and outside areas of the school and count how many shady places there are.


c) Talk about whether they are good places to be on a sunny day. Discuss what shadows are and how shadows move during the day because the Earth spins around.


d) Pupils can complete the ‘We’re going on a shade hunt’ activity sheet to apply what they have learnt about sun safety.
