Astronomy: Observatory Trip

Description

Amateur astronomer Bill Forest gives a primary class a tour of an observatory in this lesson starter for Key Stage 2 science.

Teacher Adrienne Bullen arranges an evening trip for her class from Ponsbourne St Mary's Primary School in Hertfordshire. The children ask questions about space and look at stars through a telescope, getting a glimpse into the workings of a small observatory.

The trip inspires and excites the KS2 class and helps the children put their work into context.
