A visit from an astrophysicist!

Last week we had a visit from Sam who is an astrophysicist. We went in a planetarium and started off by looking at the stars, the moon and the sun. After that, we learnt about each planet in our solar system and we could see what each one looks like. As well as learning lots of facts, we also thought of many questions. Luckily, we had a Q&A session with Sam to answer some of these questions. We also got to hold space rocks! We were stunned that these rocks were magnetic! We will link the visit to literacy by writing thank you letters to Sam and by writing non-fiction texts about our favourite planets.
