Marvellous Mines-How did mining effect Cornish History?

We are also going to try and learn a little of the Cornish language. Take a look at the pictures or feel free to come and have a look!

 Godrevy class is an environment where all children are encouraged to learn through exciting topics.

Godrevy class work closely with Camborne school and regularly visit the NEXUS Science centre, here we further our knowledge and understanding of different topics through fun and interactive workshops.

Within class we use White Rose Mastery Math and contributions from the children's ideas to plan our lessons and activities. To find more information on our current topic please have a look at our topic plan.
