Royal Observatory Educational Visit - Class 1O (February 2015)

6M visited the Royal Observatory and enjoyed the "Meet the neighbours" show at the Planetarium. They went on an amazing journey exploring and experiencing the wonders of the night sky.

Combining real images from spacecraft and telescopes, all projected onto a fully immersive dome, the Planetarium flew the children into the heart of the Sun, transported them into distant galaxies and showed them the birth of a star as well as landing them on Mars!

All the children enyoyed straddling the Greenwich Meridian Line which represents the Prime Meridian of the World – Longitude 0º.

Every place on Earth is measured in terms of its distance east or west from the Greenwich Meridian. The line itself divides the eastern and western hemispheres of the Earth, just as the Equator divides the northern and southern hemispheres.

The children enjoyed panaramic views from the top of Greenwich Hill over the city!n 1/O we went to visit the Museum of Childhood Bethnal Green. We went to the museum as part of our learning in topic. We took part in a very special workshop because we are a very special bunch of people. We learnt about toys which our grandparents, parents played with as well as toys we play with now. We got a chance to play with grandparents and parents games such as TiddlyWinks and the Rubix Cube. After our special workshop, we had a chance to explore the rest of the museum and the different galleries. We saw various different doll house, rocking horses and toys cars. We had a lot of fun and the adults we came with us had fun too. Check out the pictures of the day!!
