National Mining Museum

Year 6 on March 1st 2019

As part of our topic of ‘Life is the Pits’, Year 5 went to the National Mining Museum in Wakefield. The children met Sally a 6 year old girl, who was a trapper down the mines, they also met some Pit Ponies and its explored the grounds. Year 5 the also went down into the dark, gloomy pit to see what life was like for the Victorian pit workers and how mining has adapted throughout history. Year 5 were very lucky as Mrs Dearden was able to join us. Lots of learning took place and a great time was had by all!
