The trip to big pit
On Thursday we went on a really fun trip to the Big Pit. It was a very long trip 🚍and we saw loads of snow ❄️We were very excited and we got to play in the snow ❄️ There were a lot of people there and we split up into two groups ,one group was with Mrs Davies and the other group was with Mr Ashton. First, we went into a mini cinema 🎥 and watched a small movie of what happed in the mines,then we went into a fake mine and we heard a huge BANG🧨 (we were pretty scared !)😱 Next, we went to a real Coal mine and had a big helmet with torch 🔦 on it to see in the dark and a heavy belt with a gas mask on and a battery 🔋 to charge the light 💡. First, we went in the elevator and it was 99ft down ⬇️ It was going slow at first and once they had past each other it was very fast !💨 Finally, we made it down and it was very muddy and stinky 🤢 and we all held our noses 👃 Then we made it out of the stinky part and we went to the horse stables 🐴The funniest name was Socks 🧦 😂 and at the end there was a miner who threw orange peels at us 🍊We saw a Davy lamp which means if the fire in the lamp turns blue it means there is a gas ⛽️ attack. Then we went back up the elevator and it was freezing 🥶 up there ⬆️. Finally we had lunch 🥗. After lunch we had to go 🥺 It took more than an hour to get back but we finally made it to school 🏫 and had 10 min extra play 😀 yay!
