Key Stage 1


This colourful key stage 1 education resource introduces 5 to 7 year olds to the concepts of lighthouses, lightvessels and buoys with the assistance of three loveable characters: Dan the dog, Sammy the seal and Sarah the seagull. It also helps children develop their literacy and numeracy skills.

The resource is to be used in conjunction with the Safe at Sea online resources, on which there are games, videos and downloadable worksheets and a digital version of the teachers’ notes. It can be used independent of the printed material.

The pack, which supplements the website, contains teachers’ notes, stickers, a poster and two packs of flash cards. The folder also opens out to form a backdrop for creative play. The pack can be ordered by emailing enquiries@thls.org and providing the correspondence details of the school. Please state in your email that it is the key stage 1 pack you want.

The website is http://www.trinityhouse.co.uk/safeatsea.

This education resource has been prepared to meet the National Attainment Targets and Curriculum requirements of key stage 1. Our aim has been to bring to younger children some of the key concepts of our work, with material that is easy to use for teachers and visually appealing for children.
