As part of our Design Technology topic ‘Model Lighthouses’, today Year 2 visited St. Mary’s Lighthouse in Whitley Bay. We walked up 137 steps to the top of the lighthouse to see the lantern room where the light is, which is used to warn ships of nearby rocks. It was very tiring! Then we walked around the lighthouse and learnt about famous shipwrecks of Whitley Bay such as the California. Finally we took part in a workshop called ‘Lighthouse Keeper’s Lives’ to find out about the daily life of a lighthouse keeper. Some of us even got to try on some lighthouse keeper’s clothes!
