Gwannap Pit School visit

Gwennap Pit is ideal for school visits. There is much to learn about Gwennap Pit, John Wesley, Methodism and mining and a speaker from the Gwennap Pit team can be provided if required. The circular terraces in the Pit are ideal for sitting (mats can be provided) listening to the teacher or speaker or for eating a picnic lunch. They can also provide a bit of fun and exercise for energetic children as walking around each terrace from top to bottom and up again covers one mile.

The main curriculum areas are: R.E. (Wesley connection/Whitsun); HISTORY (mining heritage/ a sense of place/ Victorians); MATHEMATICS (problem solving/ measuring); ENGLISH (non-fiction and poetry).
