Lighthouse Fun

This term our whole school topic is Emergency and we have been using the Lighthouse Keeper books to see what the Lighthouse Keeper does when things go wrong for him. We have looked at floating and sinking, which materials make the strongest boats and have made electrical circuits to light the lamp. We also designed our own lighthouses, tested which materials let light through and in art we mixed colours to create lighthouse sunset pictures. In our Outdoor Learning session we used ropes and pulleys to transport Hamish the Cat safely.
