KS1 & KS2 ‘MINING – THEN AND NOW’
Pupils have demonstrations, a museum trail, a mill tour, handling opportunities and extension activities to choose from. Each pupil is given a FREE family ticket so they can bring their family back and enjoy the site all over again.
KS3 ‘MINING CULTURE – MY CORNWALL’
This cross-curricula session is ideal for activities week or cultural Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) opportunities. Students have a general visit to the site with a question sheet that encourages them to think about a range of issues around science, technology, Cornish history, the Cornish diaspora and economics.
KS4 APPLIED SCIENCE – RISK ASSESSMENT
Students working towards a GCSE Applied Science qualification carry out a REAL Risk Assessment (required coursework project) on a potentially risky site, which can be completed within the visit and then slotted straight into their course-work folder without any nagging from their teacher! All the necessary instructions, advice and RA sheets are provided.
