Year 7 went on the annual trip to the Royal Observatory at Greenwich on Thursday. A brisk walk through Greenwich park led us to the astronomy centre. First we had a lesson learning about Kepplers laws of planetary motion and how maths was used to discover Neptune. Then after an early lunch we explored the exhibits before a session on what makes a physicist and what sort of jobs they do. Our final session was in the planetarium and given by a very funny astronomer called Greg who taught us about stars, constellations and black holes…..and also why Mars would be a horrible place to live on. There was just time for a quick trip to the shop to pick up a souvenir and then back to school in time for the end of day. A good time was had by all!
