Lighthouses

posted in: Second Class News | 0

In S.E.S.E we looked at Lighthouses!  We looked at the different parts of the lighthouse as well as locating some on a map in Ireland.

We then read the book ‘Hello Lighthouse’ by Sophie Blackall!  We then discussed a Day in the Life of a Lighthouse Keeper.  The children wrote a recount as the keeper!

We also used the book to discuss adjectives!  We developed nouns, adjectives and “-ing” words to do with the sea and we created Sea Poems.

During Art the children created two backgrounds, one for the back of their poem and the other for their lighthouse!  Thankfully we had Mrs. Power to help us with the painting :)!
