Science Dome

Year 5 were very lucky this week to receive a visit from the Science Dome- a pop up planetarium. Children were very excited when they arrived at school (on Thursday 7th November) to find a large inflatable dome taking up most of the small hall. As the time came around for each class to go in, excitement levels soared. Inside the dome, we explored the planets in the solar system, the view of the night sky and space travel. This was a fantastic launch to our Learning Challenge topic 'Was the Mayan view of the Earth, Sun and Moon correct?'.
