    Year 1 blasted off into space this week in our very own planetarium dome, the Star Lab, set up in The Suzanne Roberts Centre for Performing Arts. In this space students were provided with an exhilarating learning experience, inquiring further into our current central idea, 'The Earth is part of a vast and complex universe'.

    Once we arrived and had our safety briefing, we passed through the airlock and entered the Cosmodome Science Theatre. Inside the dome was a big screen which projected the sky.

    Firstly, we learnt about the difference between the day and night sky, we also talked about the compass points in relation to where the sun rises and sets each day. Before long it was time to jump in our spaceship and blast off taking a journey to each of the planets. This is where we learnt interesting facts the planets in the Solar System.

    Year 1 had such a great time at the Star Lab planetarium which inspired many future astronomers!
