5º Primary explore the Arnao Mines

22nd October 19

5º Primary went to the Arnao mines where they put themselves in the shoes of miners, entering a 20m deep mine and moving through galleries using candlelight, taking notice of the tools and utensils that would have been used in the mine. They saw a video about the work of children in mines and learnt that, even today, there are children who have to work in mines.  After lunch they went to the miners academy where they discovered in the patio floor interesting ways of studying Geography, Maths and Spanish.
