Class 6 Look to the Stars!

Class 6 have had their gaze up in the night sky over the past couple of weeks as part of our Astronomy main lesson. To further our celestial explorations, we went on an excursion to Brisbane to visit the Planetarium where we very much enjoyed the dome show. We then visited the museum to see the exhibition ‘NASA: A Human Adventure’. It was fascinating to learn so much about humanity’s journey further into space, and to see some objects that had actually been to space and back. Class 6 spent most of last week sharing their fabulous and well-researched Astronomy projects with the class. This happened to coincide with the 50th year anniversary since Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were the first human beings to set foot on the moon on 20 June in 1969.
And to top it off, Class 6 did a marvellous job presenting some of the southern hemisphere Winter sky constellations at our Winter Festival on Friday.
