Mission to outer space!

Oakenclough class enjoyed a trip to Longridge Observatories where they were able to go on a mission to outer space.

The children were able to witness the observatory open up to expose the sky, where they could see the telescope move automatically to point towards specific stars and planets.

The final part of their journey took them to the planetarium where they could observe the night sky and its visible stars

They enjoyed listening to the lecturer from the local university, he was able to answer lots of wonderful questions posed by the children!
