Class Task – The Planetarium Visit

   The excited pupils at Paddocks were treated to an amazing trip from the astronomy scientists. As they took their first step, of many, into the school hall they were taken aback by the sight of the large inflatable hemisphere as immense as the biggest snow igloo. Our main reason for this unexpected trip was to launch our school writing project.

      Finally, Mark (the presenter) perplexed all of us with his outstanding knowledge of astronomy. He announced that the best place to see the beautiful, colourful Northern Lights is in Iceland. Although you can admire them best in Iceland, you can also view them in Scotland and the very South of England. Astronomers call this the Aurora Borealis.

      The newly fact-filled pupils left the planetarium buzzing with excitement. I personally felt it was a great learning experience for the pupils and the teachers. My friend Amelie said that she really enjoyed the time in the dome.

      “The fact that we had such a great teacher for the duration made it even better,” said Mrs Pannell in the aftermath.
