Learning About Lighthouses in Year 2

This week, the children have enjoyed learning about lighthouses. We have been reading different stories by the same author, David Armitage, based on a lighthouse keeper. We enjoyed reading The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch and The Lighthouse Keeper’s Picnic. We had some lovely group discussions about which was our favourite and why. We used our research skills to find out about lighthouses, and used our Numeracy skills to compare the sizes of different lighthouses across the world. We have also been working on lots of lighthouse themed activities through our enhanced provision, including designing Lego lighthouses with repeating patterns, lighthouse watercolour pictures, paper model lighthouses and using paint programmes on the PCs to paint lighthouses. Next week we will continue our learning about lighthouses by creating junk model lighthouses with working lights, making sandwiches for the lighthouse keeper and writing Welsh shopping lists for the lighthouse keeper’s wife.
