*Year 5’s Planetarium Experience*

On Wednesday 2nd March, Year 5 were very lucky to witness a Planetarium Experience where they learnt about the Earth, the other planets, the sun, our galaxy, stars and constellations, and many other things. Our planet is amazing, but in comparison to what else is out there, we are tiny! This experience was enjoyed by the adults as much as the children!

Here’s a video of some of the things we saw inside the special Space dome!

Have a great weekend everyone.

  1. thank you to the teachers and mrs Frankish for gibing us all sutch an amazing experience.
    i found out that there might be life in outersace we dont know yet because no one has ever been to any other planet alaft from the earth and the moon because there is not enough oxegen on any other planet and if you go to any other planet you would need to wear a space suit apart from the earth

  2. I like the planetarium because I have learnt things I have not learnt like the galaxy has approximately 300 billion galaxies. In the Milky Way they have 300 billion stars. I thought the planetarium was awesome and I got to go in a big dome. I have learnt loads from that experience.

  3. Soo cool I learnt about the stars.
    One thing I found out was there might be animals in space and people.
    Thank you for the really nice opportunity you gave us ❤️

  4. I loved the planetarium and I think we should have that more often I enjoyed learning about the moon and the stars especially finding out about the shapes that the stars make

  5. During the planetarium I learnt things that I had never knew before. I really liked the planetarium. The bit that I really liked was the bit when the man made shapes in the sky. The shape that I really liked was the horse pegasus. I learnt that they was a person called the Hunter and if you looked up in the sky and find three stars which make a belt. Then you have found the Hunter. The most intresting thing I found out was that Venus was made out of mountains. The planets are called Mercury,Venus,Earth,Mars,Jupiter,Saturn,
    Uranus,Neptune and Pluto which is known as a dwarf planet. All of the planets exept from Earth are all named after Greek and Roman gods and godesses. Mercury was named after the Roman god of travel. Venus was named after the Roman goddess of love and beauty. Mars was named after the Roman god of war. Jupiter was the king of the Roman gods. Saturn was named after the Roman god of agriculture. Uranus was named after an ancient Greek king of gods. Neptune was named after the Roman god of the sea. Pluto was named after the Roman god of the underground. I think they was 200 billion galaxy’s. I learnt that they was 67 planets in Jupiter. I think they is 300 billion stars in the Milky Way alone.

  6. During the planetarium experience I learnt lots about many different things that are out there in the Solar System which I never knew before.It was a great experience for me because I learnt many things about the solar system in a fun fascinating way.Approximately,in the Solar system there are 300 billion galaxies in our Solar system and in the Milky Way alone there are 300 billion stars!Imagine 300 billion people staring at your house,it looks just like that when you look at the sky.I also learnt that Venus has been visited by probes more than any other planets including dwarf planets.Also, scientists found on Mars there was some sea water! Species of Earth next takeoff Mars!.i also learnt that our galaxy is called milky way beacause the Romans thought it looked like milk pouring

  7. During the planetarium experience I gained many interesting and new facts about planets, stars and galaxies.For example, I learnt that scientists have discovered that there is water on Mars but it can not be drunk as it contains salt.Another example, I learnt that there are 67 moons in Jupiter, the largest planet, including Thebe, Metis and many more.Also I learnt that there is millions of galaxies.The most interesting fact I learnt was that the Romans used and imagined pictures in the sky and this was my favourite part.Another favourite part was when we used the constellation lamp and we saw all the images on the dome,

  9. I thought it was absolutely amazing. I totally agree with you Miss Bhandal when you say it makes you realise what else is out there and how small we really are. Year 5 can you remember approximately how many galaxies are out there?

    • Well some one left there telescope out side for a long time and then it showed many galaxies also there were approximately 100 billion galaxies in the solar system!
