Studley Planetarium

Last week, ‘The StarDome’ came to Studley High!

Standing at 4 metres tall and 6 metres wide, the dome was set up in the gym for pupils from Studley High and local primary pupils to enjoy. The dome is a portable, inflatable planetarium.

Groups of 25-30 pupils entered the dome for sessions on:

  • Life of the stars (KS4)
  • The planet and the stars (KS2-3)
  • Sun, stars and stories (KS1)

A visiting speaker from the National Space Centre in Leicestershire gave a brilliant insight into the world of ‘Space’.

Pupils found the sessions fascinating and loved the setting of a ‘mini planetarium’.
