On Monday, Year 5 welcomed Mr Murray in to share his Space Lab with us. The planetarium show was fascinating and we really enjoyed crawling through the tunnel to get inside. Once inside, we learnt all about the planets in our solar system. If you were born on Mercury, you would have a birthday every three months!!
We also looked at stars and learnt how to use the north star to find which way to travel. It was amazing to see how the night sky changes each season.
We also tried some space food. The texture was strange in our mouths. We liked the freeze dried ice cream the best.
