Sun Ready Photo Challenge and lesson plans

Tuesday 3rd April 2018

UK primary schools to win £5,000 in school trips with Boots Soltan                                                  

The Soltan Sun Ready Schools programme from Boots is offering primary schools the chance to win £5,000 for school trips, by taking part in the Sun Ready Photo Challenge. Four runners up will receive £500 and a set of school bibs for sports day.

The Sun Ready Photo Challenge encourages schools to submit photos of how they stay safe and have fun in the sun, whether that’s wearing their best sunglasses or donning their favourite summer hat. The competition is part of Boots Soltan Sun Ready Schools, a curriculum-linked programme providing free teaching resources that help to equip teachers and pupils with all the knowledge they need to stay safe on warmer days. 

As many schools work hard to allocate budgets evenly throughout the school year, the prize money offered by Boots Soltan will provide the opportunity for teachers and pupils to travel outside the school gates to an activity day, visit, or experience which will help enhance skills like teamwork, leadership and educational curiosity.

Sun safety teaching resources for primary and secondary schools 

As well as the photo competition, the Boots Soltan Sun Ready Schools resources include lesson plans, teachers’ guides, student- facing 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 and writing tasks, all designed to educate about sun safety.

The first 100 schools to download the pack to enter the Sun Ready Photo Challenge will receive a Sun Ready Schools outdoor banner featuring top sun safety tips for their school, and free samples of Boots Soltan sun cream.
