To launch their new project ‘Stargazers’, a planetarium visited school. The children were shown images of the solar system and the order of the planets. They also showed their own knowledge of the planets through discussion of the size, distance and planet composition. They listened closely as details were given about the moons, dwarf planets and constellations seen within our Solar System. Space travel was discussed to give the children a good understanding of why other planets were inhospitable.
The children will draw upon knowledge learned during this launch event, at different times during this term, and use this to help embed understanding of the facts on the Knowledge Organiser.
