Newsletter 22nd January
The term has started well and all clubs, topics and school activities are well under way. The space topic in Y5 and Y6 and the visit from the Black Hole Planetarium has really gained the pupils interest. Tim Peake’s residency on the ISS has really stimulated great interest amongst all of the pupils in the school and we are seeing some fantastic work coming into school from home. This week I was amazed to see the solar system in cake form (which also tasted delicious!) I have been ‘Tweeting’ Tim Peake on a regular basis to share what we have been doing at Glenfall. As yet I have had no response. I’m going to keep trying as I have seen him respond to other schools. Maybe you could also tweet him @astro_timpeake and see if we can get a response. We also discovered in school this week that just before dawn it is now possible to see all of the planets lined up in the southern skies. Have a look and see if you can see this amazing celestial event.
