Year 5 Immersive Theatre Experience

20 Oct 2017

Recently, Year 5 were treated to an immersion experience that was OUT OF THIS WORLD!! Year 5 teachers arranged for a planetarium to be brought into our school to LAUNCH our topic, ‘Stargazers’! We took a trip along the Milky Way into outer space to experience what life would be like on other planets and on the International Space Station! We were also able to take a closer look at the stars, the moon and the sun, all from the comfort of our own school hall. It was an amazing experience and one we are sure the children (and staff!) will not forget! If you click on the title of this article you will find photographs of the experience. Apologies for the quality of the photographs, they were taken in the dark.
