Planetarium Visit

12th June 2019
Thank you very much to our PTFA for organizing and funding the visit of Space Odyssey to St Mary's. Each class was treated to an inspirational visit inside the planetarium dome. The technology enabled pupils to take off with the Apollo Space Craft and land on the moon, compare the size of planets, see our solar system inside our galaxy and even look at our Galaxy from the outside looking in! Comments from pupils include:-
"It was amazing! I learnt loads."
"I had no idea there were more suns, and some are millions of times larger than our sun."
"It was the coolest experience ever!"
"Chris Hadfield was my age when he decided to be an astronaut."
"Black holes are small and huge at the same time - how weird is that!"
"Just amazing!"
