During a unit of work about keeping safe at sea, the children in Year 2 drilled into the life of Grace Darling, studied lifeboats and how they have changed over time including the changes in how they are launched, the Penlee disaster and learnt about lighthouses.  Discovering the ways people keep safe at sea led the children to listen to the shipping forecast which they loved so much, they decided to learn it fluently.  Alongside this unit, the Mousehole Cat was read and brought to life by our Librarian who had just come back from a holiday there.  The unit finished with a visit from the RNLI who discussed Grace Darling with the children, and made sure they were all aware of how to keep safe around water.
