Grace Darling – a Victorian Heroine

Year Two have been learning about the amazing bravery displayed by Grace Darling on 7th September 1838 when the SS Forfarshire ran aground on the Big Harcar Rocks in the Farne Islands. It is safe to say that we are obsessed with all things related to the sea and the RNLI at the moment so we are really looking forward to next week’s talk by the RNLI.
We have also been comparing seaside holidays today with those enjoyed by the Victorians 150 years ago.

Click the link below for a brilliant video clip that we have been enjoying on the BBC website.
