On the 7th November, Year 5 pupils were visited by the incredible Astrodome. It was mesmerising them as they blasted into outer space to observe the night skies. The students would highly recommend the awe-inspiring experience and rated it 10 out of 10 as a learning experience. They stated that it was a fun, extraordinary visit, almost as realistic as if they’d actually been given the chance to travel to space. The children absolutely loved observing the beautiful stars and shooting up into space. Everyone found it exciting, realistic and cosmic. The students learnt many interesting facts about their topic of Space: without stopping, it would take 180 years in a car to get to the sun; the different types of eclipse there are and if you were to touch the glass in a rocket that was entering the atmosphere, your hand would burn.
