Garforth as a Mining Village

This week in Year One as part of our GLAM topic “Making Garforth Glorious”, We have been looking into the history of Garforth and its mining history.  We discovered that Garforth was known for coal mining and wanted to know some more.  We looked at some coal and then had a go at being miners. Here we are mining chocolate chips out of a cookie with our makeshift picks.
