Year 1 and 2 in the Space Dome

Year 1 and 2 had an amazing ‘out of this world’ experience last week when we had the opportunity to experience life in Space. Once we had ‘crawled’ through the sparkly tunnel we enjoyed stargazing and learning about all the Planets in our Solar System. As we experienced ‘moving’ in Space we looked at different star constellations and listened to the story of Sirius and Orion and how they came to find themselves living amongst the Stars. It was a fantastic way to start our topic this term and we look forward to sharing work with you at our class assemblies later in the year.
