Earth and Space

As part of our Science topic ‘Earth and Space’, the children had a visit from a mobile planetarium.  The children were able to sit inside and watch videos projected onto the walls and ceiling of the planetarium. The children all loved seeing the journey into space and what all the planets look like from a different perspective.  Consequently, the children will use what they learnt in their upcoming work in Science.
