Curriculum is focused on answering our overarching question: How has the landscape changed in Barnsley over the last 200 years? Each week will focus on answering sub-questions to support our learning journey:
1. Where is Barnsley?
2. What is mining?
3. What are the physical features of Barnsley now?
4. How did the geographical features of Barnsley support the mining industry?
5. What was the Oaks Disaster?
If you or anyone you know has any knowledge and/or experience of mining in the Barnsley area, please get in touch with Mr Sonnely (class teacher).
Our fieldwork is to the National Coal Mining Museum in February.
