Our Topics


Autumn 1: Stargazers

Navigate beyond the Sun, the magnificent, blazing star at the centre of our Solar System. Investigate the planets, take a look at the Moon. Investigate gravity and compare the times of day at different places on the Earth. Exploring space is the greatest adventure that humankind has ever undertaken. Are we alone? Or are there other life forms out there?
