MINING IN CORNWALL
Carlyon Bay class had a visit from Iain Rowe, he works at the Cornwall record office and spoke to the class about the history of mining in Cornwall. We started off by watching a presentation and playing a version of 'Rock, paper, scissors' called 'Rock, water, dynamite!'
Then we got to hold ore and the metals that come from Cornish mines.
