Y3W Visit Souter Lighthouse

As part of our Science topic Y3W have been learning about light. We have spent time finding out about different sources of light and how light is used in our everyday lives. We have really enjoyed this topic and the investigations we have carried out.

This week, as part of our learning we visited Souter Lighthouse. This visit gave us a chance to find out even more about light is used in our own community. We were amazed to find out that Souter Lighthouse was the first Lighthouse to generate electricity. We learned lots of other facts about the lighthouse, the role of the lighthouse keeper’s and got to climb right to the top of the lighthouse… climbing over 100 stairs! We even made our own lighthouses by creating closed circuits.

The children were fantastic and we all had a great day.

Here are some photo’s from our visit.
