Y5 Space Sleepover and Exhibition


Torrisholme’s first ever Space Sleepover was a marvellous success, in spite of there being no stars to see. The children returned to school at 6:00pm and spent two hours completing their research and putting together their exhibits. They then went outside for an hour and used a real-life telescope. We also used iPads and iPhones to plot where the stars were. After returning inside, children had toast and hot chocolate and settled down to watch ET.

In the morning, with the hall transformed into a museum exhibit, parents were invited to wander round and learn about topics such as Neil Armstrong, animals in space and telescopes. Children acted as experts and answered all the questions that were thrown at them. Parents were very complementary about the work the children had put in to make such a professional exhibition.
