Maidenhead Astronomical Society

Visit of Maidenhead Astronomical Society Year 5


On Tuesday 21st of January 2020, the Maidenhead Astronomical Society (MAS) visited our school with their telescopes as we have been learning about space in our Project based learning, this term. The children in Year 5 were given an opportunity to use the telescopes and learn to use them. They were also given information on the solar system and the celestial bodies; how day and night and seasons etc are formed was demonstrated along with making scaled models of the solar system using different size balls. The children gained tremendous knowledge on space and thoroughly enjoyed this visit.
