With the wonderful help of Mrs Stead (previous school cook) Y3 made miner’s pasties.

We have been learning about mining in our local area. We were really interested to learn about

the history of Cornish tin miners and how they used the pasty. We made a savoury part and a sweet part too.

We have had a truly awesome day at Honister Slate Mine! They even got to fill their pockets with Slate! 

The guide today commented on what a great bunch the children were, well behavedand he was impressed with their knowledge.

A few conquered fears of the dark, even the adults!

We have had a great time investigating rocks. We tested the hardness of different rocks by scratching them

with different materials. Next we made predictions and tested if any rocks would float.

We also looked closely at interesting rocks, crystals, fossils and ancient shark teeth. We think that science rocks!!!
