The ‘Wonderdome’!

As part of World Space Week and to supplement their science topic ‘Earth and Space’, Year 5 also had the fantastic opportunity to walk inside a mobile planetarium. The ‘WonderDome’ created a morning of excitement and wonder. The sessions were run by an astronomy specialist who was able to take the boys on an interactive journey through space. There was even a chance to look at some different types of nebulae; how the human race is trying to visit Mars by 2040 and how rovers are able to help us to detect if water is present on different planets or even a planet’s orbiting moons. The boys really demonstrated their knowledge and interest by asking some fabulous questions at the end. Well done Year 5 and all those who took part in Space Week 2023 and made space week a cosmic success.
