Space Dome


What an exciting introduction Year 5 have had to their new 'Earth and Space' Science topic!


Entering the Space Dome curiously, Year 5 were ready to look up at the 'stars' and listen to a range of myths and legends about different star constellations. Altogether, they found out that there are 88 different star constellations in total.


Once Year 5 had been left starry-eyed, they were ready to share their initial understandings about 'Earth and Space' and to start finding out key facts that will help them during their upcoming Science lessons.
