Yr 5 go to the Planetarium


On arrival we roamed around the foyer and saw probes and spaceships.  We answered questions about the universe.  Next we entered the Sky Dome where we flew through space using virtual reality technology.  Here we learnt how small we are compared to the universe and that Jupiter is hot enough to be a second sun.

Then we saw the natural beauty of the Mt Cootha Botanical Gardens.  While we were there we ventured into the Green House and saw the tropical rainforest plants.  Also, most of us saw the art of Bonsai trees for the first time.

Year 5 loved this fantastic opportunity to learn more about space at the Planetarium.
