22/09/17: Year 5 Space Dome

Space Dome:


As part of our current Science Topic (Earth and Space), Year 5 had the pleasure of being joined by an actual Astronomer! We have already fiercely debated the Spherical Earth vs. Flat Earth theories and briefly discussed the order of the planets, so we were well armed to answer any questions that would be asked of us during our trip into 'Outer-Space'.


Our amazing  astronomer brought along his incredible Space Dome, which was enjoyed by pupils and staff alike! We were mind blown by what we learnt about inside the dome, yet we were also pleased to hear some familiar names (Andromeda, Persues and the Kraken to name a few) from our Ancient Greek work.
