A very big thank you to Dr Anthony Brown and Trey from Durham University for coming along to visit us with a mobile Planetarium.

We learnt a huge amount about how stars are formed and how they die, the importance of the constant North Star (Polaris) and how it is used for navigation purposes. The constellations were fascinating and beautiful to see. Key Stage 2 children also thought an astronomer's job was really interesting and it opened their mind and imagination to the types of careers available to them.
