We had such an interesting session with our astronomer Matt this morning. The children (and Mrs Zermane and I!) were captivated from beginning to end and were so excited to listen to a ‘real expert’!
Matt gave the children a detailed presentation on the characteristics of the planets and allowed the children to ask their many questions! We were excited to learn about the relative sizes of the planets, why Pluto isn’t considered a planet anymore, how the moon came to exist and tried to get our head around just how big hyper giant stars are! Matt was very impressed by the enthusiasm of the children and their knowledge so far. He even stayed for our space picnic! Thank you so much to all parents for your contributions to our space picnic. The children had a thoroughly enjoyable morning.
