Planetarium Dome 2020

All our pupils were very excited with the arrival of the Planetarium Dome in the school hall!


Two members of staff, from the Observatory Science Centre in Herstmonceux, visited the school on Wednesday 11th March with their amazing Planetarium Dome.  Many of the children were excited before they even stepped inside the dome, but they were fascinated with what they saw inside and for many it was a magical and captivating insight into astronomy.


Our visitors were delighted with the very thoughtful and challenging questions they were asked by children across all the year groups.


We hope all your children enjoyed the experience.


With the exception of the first photo, the images are from inside the dome.  Due to the conditions some are a little blurred, but hopefully they will give you a sense of what the children experienced.
