People Who Help Us.

As part of our ‘People Who Help Us’ topic P1/2 visited Dunbar RNLI. We went on Tuesday. First we watched a video about what lifeboat workers do. Next we went in a lifeboat – but not on the sea. Kenny showed us all the things you need to have in the lifeboat. He is the lifeboat engineer. […]
