In this story, Duck and Prickles find themselves in a difficult situation, and Dog, Cat and their families help rescue them from harm and keep them safe.
In this story you will look at sun safety, and how we can help protect ourselves when we are out in it.
Have a chat with your child to see if they have any questions or concerns.
Ask your child:
What can happen if we aren’t careful when out in the sun?
We want to emphasise appropriate clothing and sun protection, helps to keep us safe and well.
Give the example to your child that Fire Fighters wouldn’t wear shorts and a T-shirt to put out a fire. They would wear fire proof clothing to protect them – it’s all about the right equipment for the correct task.
Now display the ‘Staying safe in the sun ACTIVITY’ sheet and work together to decide which of the items would be needed to help stay safe in the sun.
If you see your child struggling, Use the ‘Staying safe in the sun ANSWERS’ sheet, to help them.
Explain to your child:
We are now going to play a little game to see if we can spot 4 different places, we should be aware of where there might be water danger. Show your child the ‘Staying safe around water ACTIVITY’ sheet and work together to identify the places, where there could be dangers around water.
