Geevor Mine Tresillian Class

Wow! What an awesome day Tresillian Class have had! To kick start our topic of Cornwall we visited Geevor Mine to learn more about our mining heritage. We learnt about how the Mine operated, we panned for gold, we learnt about the different jobs and even had a go at doing them ourselves! But best of all we all went underground to see what it was really like down there! Such a great day packed full of history and science which we are all looking forward to building upon in the classroom.

Also, really proud to say that all the staff at Geevor commented on Constantine’s fantastic behaviour and great questions! Especially when talking to real miners, well done all!

We would definitely recommend a visit!
