Today we had a planetarium in and the children were able to visit the dome and find out even more information about space. The children took a look at the planets, the solar system, the Milky Way and some astronauts who had visited space. The children had time to ask questions, some of these were amazing and found out even more information.
When the children got back to the classroom they wrote down any unanswered questions and then they had time to find out the answers.
Following on from this they did space themed art, we used gold and silver paint to create a star effect in the background and then used watercolours to recreate the colours of the p,abets. The children then used some spray oil based inks to complete the space effect. These are currently drying but we can’t wait to show you the finished product.
Another great day – we love science week.
