Today, you all finished your lighthouses and they are fantastic. You all thought carefully about your designs, organised the order of work and decided on which model of switch to use. I am SO impressed by your work. Very well done!
We were visited by The RNLI this morning so that we could learn about water safety. We learnt about the meaning of beach flags, how to call for help and the differing signals between lighthouses. We also acted out a short role play and competed against each other to dress as lifeboat people. Thank you Bob- we will hopefully see you again in the summer.
