Year 5 Get Spaced Out

On Tuesday 5th February, the children in Year 5 had their Planet Earth topic work brought to life with a visit from the Space Lab Planetarium. In the dome, Mr Barber did an ‘Earth and Beyond’ presentation to each Year 5 class where they learnt about the solar system, the sun, the planets and their movements to create day/night and years. They watched the model of how the moon has phases and why, and were then wowed by the stars when the dome went pitch black inside revealing the constellations. Did you know the North Star doesn’t move and is a good navigational tool? 

Year 5 are linking this experience with their science and English work in particular, and will carry on their learning back in the classroom.
