Pennoweth School bring their “castles” topic to life at Pendennis

Pennoweth School bring their “castles” topic to life at Pendennis

School News From Cornwall Heritage Trust Grants for School Transport   Pennoweth School Pendennis Castle October 2017 This week, all Key Stage One children visited Pendennis Castle as part of their ‘castles’ topic. Children were transported back to Tudor times, learning about the important role the castle played in defending Cornwall against invasion. Children loved exploring the different parts of the castle, especially the atmospheirc lower gun room – with cannons, ‘gun-smoke’, barrels of gunpowder and alcoves in the wall for cannonballs. All children took part in a Now and Then workshop, discovering how everyday objects (some of which we still use today) and clothes have changed over time. It was wonderful to see the children’s smiles when they dressed up in Tudor costume, and how fascinated they were by the facts of what life was like at that time. The KS1 team would like to thank all parents and family helpers who volunteered their time to accompany us on the trip – we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. Also, a very special thank you must go to The Cornwall Heritage Trust who provided funding towards the cost of the transport on both days.

Penponds School visit the largest waterwheel in Cornwall at Wheal Martyn Museum!

Penponds School visit the largest waterwheel in Cornwall at Wheal Martyn Museum!

School News From Cornwall Heritage Trust Grants for School Transport   Penponds School Wheal Martyn Museum March 2017 Treggoning’s Trip to Wheal Martyn On the 13th of March, Treggoning class from Penponds School went to Wheal Martyn clay mine to learn about mining in Cornwall. It was an hours drive to get to Wheal Martyn – but it went quickly thanks to our coach driver! When we got there, we were spilt into groups and given our team leader; ours was called Mike. Then we put our bags down and set off to explore the site. Firstly, our group stopped at Cornwall’s largest water wheel. Some people already knew about: we had researched it on the internet. We had looked at the website beforehand. Next we explored the old mine buildings before climbing to the top of the hill to view a real working china clay pit – it was huge! We also had a snack there. After that, it was lunch time which we ate outside. The weather was dry but cold. In the afternoon, we all did a workshop called Soggy Socks and Gemma led it. That was my favourite thing. We were given the challenge of designing a special sock to keep the miners’ feet warm and dry when they were working in the pit. All in all it was a great day and I would definitely like to go there again!   By Bonnie and Tiffany   More News from the Schools St Cleer School went in search of the golden cup at Minions School News Lanlivery School take a trip to Carn Euny School...
