On Tuesday 21st January PP2 went to York to learn more about Space. The trip began in the Cosmodome where the pupils travelled through the solar system investigating the planets and stars. It felt as if they were amongst the stars, but all of the spinning made them quite dizzy! The children learnt lots about the planets, including the fact that the rings of Saturn are made of ice and the rings of Neptune are made from space dust! They found out that Venus is the brightest planet and Jupiter is the biggest planet with the most moons. Next they went into the Observatory to look at a Victorian telescope, which has cross hairs made from spider web! The pupils discovered how it works and that a new star was found using this telescope. A fantastic day…. Out of this World!
