On Monday the 21st August the Grade 3’s were privileged enough to be visited by the Cape Town Mobile Science Centre’s Travelleing Planetarium. Each class was able to have a turn to enter into the blow-up dome to spend some time travelling through our solar system.

As they entered the dark dome they were instructed to get comfortable, lay back and enjoy the animated video that was projected onto the ceiling of the dome.

This was a riveting experience for the students, allowing them to feel as though they were a character in the video, as it was projected all around them.The Grade 3s were challenged, at the end, to answer a couple of questions about what they had just seen.

This visual representation of all the learning we have done as a grade so far was a fantastic way to conclude learning of our theme for the day.
