Tuesday, KS1 Outer Space Day

Jaw dropping moments in our very own planetarium for the day!


Year 1 and Year 2 have had a brilliant time enjoying sessions in the temporary planetarium, set up in the hall by Dr Simon Sheridan from the Open University.

The children were able to watch a simulation of the sky around the school to show how the sun is in different positions in the sky at different times. They were stunned to see shooting stars and the view of some of the different constellations, including seeing overlays of the imagined animals and people associated with them. They were then taken on an awe
inspiring tour of our solar system!

Also on Tuesday…
Year 2 investigated layering liquids! They predicted what would happen when liquids such as vegetable oil, water, honey and tomato ketchup mixed and were fascinated to find out the results! They also had lots of fun learning about Aqua dragons, creating a habitat for them. They are going to observe them hatch and grow over the next few weeks!


Year 1 had a super time making their very own lava lamps. Like in Year 2, the children were fascinated by the way the liquids formed layers and really enjoyed the process of making their lamps! 

Pine had a brilliant time investigating their shadows, marking the outline in chalk in the outdoor area at different times of the day. They also made a volcano and had a huge amount of fun planting their own bean seeds in wet paper towels.
