Mining Workshop
 
On Tuesday, Clint from Geevor Tin Mine came into school to show us some artefacts and to talk to us about life in a tin mine and what we would see on our trip to Geevor on Thursday. The children got the chance to look at, hold and even dress up in some of the clothes and equipment from Victorian and more recent times. The knowledge and enthusiasm the children showed was a credit to themselves and the school. Look at the photos below to see what we got up to.
Trip to Geevor Tin Mine
 
 
The children and staff had a great day at Geevor, looking at the mine buildings and finding out how they work, as well as using some of the tools that would have been used in the past. Going inside the mine was an amazing experience for all, but as usual the best bit was the panning for gems!
A big thank you to all the parents and grandparents who helped us on the day and very special thanks go to the Cornwall Heritage Trust for giving us a grant to cover the cost of the transport. We couldn't have run the trip without either of you!
