Geevor Tin Mine – Helford class

On Monday, both Helford and Tresilian class visited Geevor tin mine and what a wonderful day we all had.  It was an amazing experience to visit somewhere this special.  We have done a lot of learning in class about Cornwall’s mining heritage and the children were able to make links with this throughout the day.

Thank you so much to our volunteer helpers and Wheal Briton for the transport.  A huge thank you to Clint, Jack and all at Geevor tin mine who made this such a memorable day, we would all love to go back.

Also, a big thanks to Cornwall Heritage Trust who gave us a grant towards our transport!
