On Tuesday Y2 launched their topic ' The Lighthouse Keeper's Daughter' with an informative and engaging visit from two RNLI volunteers. The children learnt about Grace Darling and why she is a heroine. They watched footage showing the development of lifeboats over the centuries and explored the pros and cons of each type of boat. The children were able to see at first hand the life jackets, belts, boots and helmets used by current lifeboat crew. The children asked some very sensible and probing questions and were in awe of the lifeboat crew when shown some footage of real sea rescues.
