Star Gazing

Stargazing at West Ashton Primary School

 

The Nursery, Reception, Years One and Two children of West Ashton C of E Primary School held an evening of stargazing. The evening was a fantastic success with over 60 people in attendance. The children were able to see plenty of stars in the clear skies as well as the moon, the planet Venus and even the Milky Way. The children all enjoyed looking at the moon through telescopes.

The staff of West Ashton organised a wonderful event which included a Power Point to help the children identify objects and phenomena they might see in the night sky then there was hot chocolate with a story to warm everyone up. The evening ended with a performance from the Nursery and Reception children of Shooting Stars class to showcase their knowledge of planets.
