Kielder Observatory visits Longhoughton

31st January 2023
What an amazing day! On Tuesday 31st January 2023, scientists from Kielder Observatory brought the inflatable planetarium to school.
Children from Reception through to Year 6 spent time in the planetarium learning about the skies above us. They found out about the skies at night, stars, constellations, the links to the Zodiac signs and the planets.
Later in the day the children in St David and St Andrew Classes took part in a workshop to find out more about the Solar System.
The children in St Patrick Class had a workshop on Investigating Light.
