To Infinity and Beyond at Children 1st @ Bilborough

Courtesy of the National Space Centre in Leicester, the early years children have been transported on a mission to explore the galaxy.

The early years children joined with the reception age children from the Jubilee LEAD Academy to share a Tour of The Night Sky in the visiting planetarium. The magical view of the sky at night enabled the children to observe the star patterns visible at this time of year. Josh, from the Space Centre, enthralled the children with stories of the mythological beings associated with the stars.

The planetarium visit helped the children to further explore the concepts of light and dark and Mr Moon and Little Miss Sunshine which we’d been finding out about in nursery.

Our photos show some of the images seen by the children during their time in the planetarium.
