YEAR 5 - PLANETARIUM VISIT
Year 5 recently enjoyed an eye-opening trip through the universe! As part of the children’s topic of Earth and Space, a learning dome was erected in the school hall. Inside the dome, the children were taken on a tour around our planet. Children discovered our place in the solar system and were shown how to spot a range of star clusters. By the end of the visit, the children were better equipped to knowledgeably study the night skies. Using their detective and observation skills, they should, amongst other things, now be able to understand why day turns into night and what makes the moon look different shapes.
