Reception Explorer Dome

25th January 2017

Reception are learning about Space and this week they enjoyed a visit from the Explorer Dome. Miss Hinwood reports;

Inside the dome we learnt about star constellations and the story of Orion including how to find him in the stars by looking for his diamond belt.  We also learnt about the sun and how it was created, how hot it is and how the planets move around it in an orbit. We also had a 'question and answer' session in which the children asked "If the earth is spinning why don't we feel like we are moving? What is the biggest star in space? How cold is it on Pluto? How do space shuttles and rockets launch?"
