We visited Souter Lighthouse to find out more about what Grace Darling’s life might have been like. The children looked around the lighthouse keeper’s cottage and found out what various items such as a carpet beater would have been used for. The children were extremely brave and climbed to the very top of the lighthouse to find out how the light works. They finished the day by making their own miniature lighthouses with a circuit to make it light up.
