Our trip to Geevor Tin Mine

On Wednesday, Porthpean class visited Geevor Tin Mine as part of their topic learning on Cornish Mining. The children got given a fantastic guided tour both above and below ground to see and experience what working life was like for a Cornish tin miner. Not only did they get to touch and use artefacts, but they also got to meet some of the former miners who worked on the site until its closure in 1990.  We were fortunate to hear some of their  fascintaing stories, and the children asked some very thoughtful questions. 

The children were highly commended by the staff for their outstanding behaviour and their impressive knowledge about this subject. We now look forward to continuing our exciting topic in class!
