On Monday 30th November, Y5 had a very special meeting on Google Meet with an astronomer in New Zealand! Dave Owen is an astronomer, teacher, owner of a space museum in New Zealand and fanatic space enthusiast. He has been passionate about space for as long as he can remember, and he loves sharing his enthusiasm with others.
The children learnt more about Earth’s position in the Solar System and wider Universe; days, nights and years on Earth and other planets; the night sky; spaceflight (including robotic space probes and human exploration of space) and the International Space Station.
Here are some quotes from the children:
“It was a fantastic meeting and we all learnt so much about Space that we didn´t know”
