On Friday 3rd March, Year 5 enjoyed a wonderful evening at their stargazing sleepover. The evening began with a presentation from Farnham Astronomical Society about space and the galaxy. Although we were unable to go outside for our stargazing, our guests showed us their equipment and how we could use it if we had better weather.
The children were very well behaved and enjoyed sleeping in their new bedrooms. Thank you to all the staff for spending an evening with our children and to Farnham Astronomical Society for sharing their knowledge and
expertise with us.
