Welcome to Bluebirds' Class
Year 5 Mr Ingram
Pits and Ponies
Our topic for this half term is called Pits and Ponies. Throughout the topic the children will study the history of coal mining looking at its impact on the towns and valleys of Wales.
We will begin our topic with a trip to The Big Pit in Blaenavon where the children will be able to experience, first hand, what it was like to work underground.
When back in the classroom pupils will be exploring the role of children in the mining industry, pit disasters and mining strikes, focussing on the impact they had on families, miners and communities.
We will also be working alongside members of the community participating in the Minors Memorial Project, commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Blaenllechau pit disaster.
