Grace Darling – a true heroine

Welcome back! We hope you enjoyed the Easter break. Y2 all agree (both staff and children!) that it is lovely to have a holiday but great to be back at school.

We were very excited yesterday to begin learning about Grace Darling. We learned that Grace, along with her father, Longstone lighthouse keeper William Darling, carried out an incredibly courageous rescue in stormy seas in September 1838 when she was just 17 years old. We watched a video on the BBC website and another on the RNLI website to gather as much information as we could. It was all most fascinating and we can’t wait to find out more!
