Betteshanger - Year 6
14th Jun 2023
Year 6 enjoyed a fantastic day at Betteshanger Mining Museum. They got a private tour of the museum where they were able to dress up as miners, they handled mining artefacts, experienced what it would have been like in a mine lift cage and mine tunnel, thought about pride and unity by creating banners and travelled as a miner would have as they migrated to Deal. The highlight of the day was the talk from the 2 Jims who worked at Betteshanger Colliery.
