Year 1 Lighthouse Tour!
Year 1 had the brilliant opportunity of going on a tour of the Lighthouses near to where we live.
We decided to visit Souter Lighthouse first which is a very tall red and white lighthouse. We explored the lighthouse and even saw the fog horn! The lighthouse had a perfect view being perched high up on the cliffs and we enjoyed looking out to sea.
Next, we ventured back to Roker and walked along the long pier until we got to Roker Lighthouse. We were fascinated to learn that underneath the pier there is a secret tunnel for a lighthouse keeper to use in bad weather!
We had a picnic lunch on the beach and spent the afternoon digging sandcastles, splashing in the sea and eating yummy scrummy ice cream. The weather was fantastic and the children behaved so well. Well done Year 1!
