This is the last lesson using the Giant's Necklace.
Watch the video, complete the work in it and then write the book review on here. You might find it better to type if you can.
Although we are doing a Geography topic, it seems a shame to miss out on the history of Newstead Village.
Most of you have already recognised that a lot of 'old' Newstead is there because of the mining in the area.
There are enthusiasts that still remember years gone by. They do this for many reasons. What that means is, we can find out information from others that know more than us.
The webpage below is written by a group of people (enthusiasts) and although we might question the validity (whether it's true), we can assume that they have no reason to make the information up.
You may present the information in whatever works best for you but try to answer these questions.
What can you learn from the website?
Can you create a timeline of the main events involving Newstead Colliery?
What were some of the problems faced?
Why did the pit close?
Are there still buildings/places that show that a pit used to be in Newstead?
What historical photographic evidence can you find?
You might also be able to use some of your other mapwork to help understand more about the area.
Can you create a photo montage of the photographic evidence you have found.
You could use something like 'pic collage' (there are lots to choose from, I'm sure that you know more than me!
Or you might like to simply put the pictures in a PowerPoint.
Once you've done, attach the image or file onto the assignment when you hand it in.
