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 Mary’s School in Bodmin study tunnels and turrets at Pendennis School News St Hilary School explore the fogou at Carn Euny School...

School News From Cornwall Heritage Trust Grants for School Transport   Perranporth School Pendennis Castle March 2017 Perranporth School recently visited Pendennis Castle where they enjoyed a very busy day of activities spanning the centuries between the Tudors and World War 2!  Below is their activity plan for the day, it looks great fun, very informative and tiring!! We did a round of the following activities on the day as follows:  Activity 1 – Tudor Gun room in castle – poem Listen and experience the gun room- what can you see, hear, smell, taste, feel? Pretend you are one of the gunners and write a poem about your experience in the Tudor gun room. You could make an acrostic poem to start you off – PENDENNIS   Activity 2 – Guns through the ages  Location: around the perimeter of the site (the left side- the St Mawes side) is a good area with a lot of different guns (the WW1 dining area in front of the main castle is a good area to go if it is raining.   Create a leaflet all about different types of guns. Can you decide which guns are the oldest and which are more modern- why? Draw the guns in detail. Draw the fine details and moving parts. Title and label them (if there are any information boards). How are the more modern guns an improvement on the older ones? Use a tape measure to carefully measure them and put your measurements on your drawings. Activity 3- Old castle / new castle Sketch the outside of the old Tudor castle – 15mins Look for details...
Nanstallon School enjoy a soggy trip to The Hurlers!

Nanstallon School enjoy a soggy trip to The Hurlers!

School News From Cornwall Heritage Trust Grants for School Transport   Nanstallon School The Hurlers November 2016 Willow class visited Bodmin Moor recently as part of their topic on the Stone Age, they went to see The Hurlers.  Extreme rainy weather meant that, on arriving, they went straight into the shelter of the engine house. There, they were able to learn all about the history of both The Hurlers and mining in that area. They discovered that The Hurlers was a unique arrangement of stones set out in three circles (we still don’t know why they are there!) Luckily, the weather cleared up enough for them to explore around the three circles and really get a feel for what it would have been like to have been there during those times (the weather helped with outdoor living!) As they were all a little wet they rounded off their trip with a visit to the local post office and an ice-cream. “A very big thank you to Cornwall Heritage Trust for helping us with the cost of transport for this trip.”   More News from the Schools St Mary’s School in Bodmin study tunnels and turrets at Pendennis School News St Hilary School explore the fogou at Carn Euny School News St Cleer School went in search of the golden cup at Minions School News Lanlivery School take a trip to Carn Euny School News Pennoweth School bring their “castles” topic to life at Pendennis School News Perranporth School experience life in Victorian times at Lanhydrock School News The Rhoda Mary Project Grants Analysis of Metals in Cornish Granite Bursaries Coastguard’s...

The children were also given the opportunity to explore the cathedral and complete a spotter’s activity, where they had to identify, locate and research parts of the cathedral. Dobwalls School greatly appreciated the funding Cornwall Heritage Trust gave them as without this the trip would not have been possible.    More News from the Schools St Mary’s School in Bodmin study tunnels and turrets at Pendennis School News St Hilary School explore the fogou at Carn Euny School News St Cleer School went in search of the golden cup at Minions School News Lanlivery School take a trip to Carn Euny School News Pennoweth School bring their “castles” topic to life at Pendennis School News Perranporth School experience life in Victorian times at Lanhydrock School News The Rhoda Mary Project Grants Analysis of Metals in Cornish Granite Bursaries Coastguard’s Daughter Grants Dark Skies Grants « Older Entries Next Entries...
