The Lighthouse Keeper

Ysgol Y Ddraigg School Lighthouse Keeper


Year 2 children were also astounded by a very special visit from Mr Grinling, the lighthouse keeper.

Every day, Mr Grinling the lighthouse keeper cleans and polishes his light to make sure it shines brightly at night. At lunchtime he tucks into a delicious and well-deserved lunch, prepared by his wife. But Mr Grinling isn't the only one who enjoys the tasty food. Will Mrs Grinling think of a way to stop the greedy seagulls from stealing the lighthouse keeper's lunch?

We listened to his tales of the sea and his lighthouse stories. Children all made a mustard sandwich in a time challenge and helped the picnic basket across the wire, just like the story 'The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch.’
