Our new topic.. local mining!

This week in year 3, we have started our new topic learning all about the local mines. It has been an exciting and informative start to the term, learning about how coal is formed, some key facts about mines and the jobs that children use to do in the mines. How scary to think we would have been working in the mines if we were alive in Victorian times! 

Here are some of the drawings we have done of pit ponies and mining lamps after researching all about them.
