Making Lighthouses

In year 1, we have been reading ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch.’ We designed our own lighthouses and used recycled materials to build them. We looked at pictures of different lighthouses from around the world to decide how to decorate our lighthouses. Finally, we painted them using a range of designs.

Mary Seacole

We learnt about Mary Seacole and the important work she carried out. We found out that she made her own herbal medicines. We searched for natural ingredients to make our own medicines. We were visited by an actress in the role of Mary Seacole. We had the opportunity to take on different roles to act out some of the significant events in Mary’s life and it helped us to find out more information about Mary Seacole’s life and work .
