St Cleer School went in search of the golden cup at Minions

School News From Cornwall Heritage Trust Grants for School Transport   St Cleer School Minions October 2017   Year 3 from St Cleer School have been learning about ‘Prehistoric Cornwall’. They were particularly interested in learning about the infamous golden cup found at Rillaton Barrow. Thanks to Cornwall Heritage Trust, the children were able to visit the site along with their guide, Steve. It was fascinating to see where the cup had been discovered but also to learn about what an important site Minions really is and the amount of history it holds! The good old Cornish weather created a great atmosphere too (so much so they made a parachute shelter in which to enjoy their snack!) Steve also took them to see the Hurlers and told Year 3 the legend behind this impressive stone circle. This experience really brought the children’s learning to life and was greatly enjoyed by all.  More News from the Schools Perranporth School perform Cornish songs at Lowender Peran School News Luxulyan School School News St Issey Vikings invade Padstow!

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.
