Planetarium – Maple Class

On February 4th Science Oxford brought a planetarium into school – we were all really excited about it as this has been our favourite topic so far!  Everyone loved being inside it was just amazing – we were able to view the sky in a different year, ten years away, different times of day and even different countries; we could even see the outside of the school from inside the planetarium!

The man told us that Earth is only half way through its life span and still has five billion years left; as the sun starts to expand it will wipe out and swallow Mercury, Venus, Earth and possibly Mars before it explodes – what a thought!
