Winterbourne Early Years Centre Completes Step 3 towards becoming a Sun Safe Nursery - Teaching Resources & Activities

Congratulations to Winterbourne Early Years Centre for reading George the Sun Safe Superstar to all their children and introducing everyone to the ‘Slip, Slap, Slop song’.Winterbourne Early Years Centre have also pledged to continue to regularly use the resources provided to reinforce the sun safe message to their children.

“The children enjoyed the song and story, however they did point out that it's cold and raining so we have promised to keep doing it with them so they remember it when the sun does come out.”

(Martha Farrell - Winterbourne Early Years Centre )

“We have included several sun safe activities in our long term planning and as promised to our children we will re visit George and the song often.”
