Year 2 World Space Week
As 4th October-10th October was World Space Week, Year 2 decided to celebrate it as part of their topic 'Where in the world am I?'. The children had prepared lots of questions about their place in the universe such as "Why is space black?" and "Is there another planet we could live on?". They were also preparing lots of facts about Sir Bernard Lovell who was the man behind the Lovell telescope at Jodrell Bank and the children wanted to find out much more about him than they could find out through the internet and books.
In order to answer these questions we invited in Mr Speed, a former astronomer who used to work at Jodrell Bank on the Lovell telescope with Sir Bernard Lovell himself. Some of the children made detailed notes so that they could use their new found facts in their writing. The children loved having their, sometimes quite challenging, questions answers with some even staying behind at break-time to carry on talking to him!
