Connor Downs Academy experience life before electricity at Lanhydrock House!

School News From Cornwall Heritage Trust Grants for School Transport   Connor Downs Academy Lanhydrock House October 2016 On Monday 10th October Year 2 went on their autumn term trip to Lanhydrock House.  Their visit had a historical focus, to look at and experience life before electricity.   The sun shone for the duration of their visit and the children explored the house from the point of view of the children, family and servants.  Everyone was fascinated with how different life was: “I found out that they had to clean the carpets with a carpet beater because they didn’t have hoovers!” – Chloe “I liked the beds with the “half tester and full tester covers” like a roof over them to stop bats or bugs landing on you during the night because at first the rooms had no ceilings!” – Ruby In the afternoon they explored the gardens: “This is like paradise”, commented Caelan. The children will build upon their learning focusing on developing their literacy through history.

It has certainly enhanced their History topic of the Romans and their RE topic of  Why is Truro Cathedral so important?”   More News from the Schools St Mary’s C of E School, Penzance School News Grylls Monument Restoration Grants Sensory Trust – Launch of Sensory Guides, King Edward Mine event Grants Shipwrecked at Charlestown with Lifton School School News Lanner School trip to Truro Cathedral School News Lanner School trip to Truro Cathedral A date with Roman history for St Neot School School News Pelynt Primary School meet the Vikings!

Shipwrecked at Charlestown with Lifton School

Shipwrecked at Charlestown with Lifton School

School News From Cornwall Heritage Trust Grants for School Transport   Lifton School Charlestown Shipwreck & Heritage Centre July 2016 On Wednesday 13th July, Badgers’ class from Lifton C.P. School travelled south from Launceston to Charlestown near St. Austell. We visited the Shipwreck & Heritage Centre where we looked at lots of interesting exhibits including: diving suits throughout the ages, the history of Charlestown and why it was named as such, types of nautical knot, blacksmiths’ & coopers’ equipment, and in particular all the shipwreck artefacts. The children especially loved looking at ‘The Titanic’ artefacts (including the necklace worn by Kate Winslet in the blockbuster movie of the same name!). Many of the boys were fascinated by the large cannons dotted about the museum’s grounds and huge anchor! It was interesting to learn about the reasons behind all the historical wrecks and plight of the lifeboat crews.  The children asked many questions such ‘What was the oldest artefact in the museum?’ which caught the curator out!  The children were excited to go through the dark tunnels and along the train tracks where clay from the nearby pits used to be dried and transported and shipped all over world. We also explored the harbour and admired the clear, calm seas of the South Coast of Cornwall! It was altogether a lovely day and we owe many thanks to the Cornish Heritage Trust for enabling this educational trip to take place.   More News from the Schools St Mary’s C of E School, Penzance School News Grylls Monument Restoration Grants Sensory Trust – Launch of Sensory Guides, King Edward Mine event Grants...
