Year 5 have had a fantastic day learning all about the history of mining in Barnsley. We’ve all been on a tour around a real mine and taken part in workshops where we found out about what a miner’s life would’ve been like! What a fantastic day we had! We travelled deep under the ground to experience life as a real miner – exciting and chilly too! We loved exploring the exhibits and we were delighted that it was a sunny (but breezy) day! This meant that we could spend time enjoying the amazing, new, mining-themed adventure play area. The pit ponies were one of our star attractions. We also loved our trip to the pithead baths. Mick and Taz our tour guides made us laugh all day long so thank you to them. Today, we certainly were creative learners – a day to remember! Thank you to Mrs. Evans for arranging such a special experience.
