To aid with their studies of the forthcoming Earth and Space topic, the Y7 boys have a wonderful opportunity to visit the Bedford School Planetarium and Observatory after school in the coming weeks. Four occasions have been arranged so far. They are:
Friday 30th November
Tuesday 4th December
Thursday 6th December
Friday 7th December
There will be a planetarium slide show and an opportunity to ask questions. If the weather is suitable, the boys will also be able to observe through various telescopes including the main observatory instrument.
Please ensure the boys have suitable (warm) clothing. We will assemble outside the Wells Building after school and then the boys will be accompanied up past Chapel and will access the observatory from the gates halfway down Pemberley Avenue (next to Phillpotts boarding house). Please pick up the boys from these gates too, at around 5.45pm. (Boys who are not collected at 5.45pm will be taken back down to the Prep School.)
If your son would like to attend, please ask him to sign his name up a.s.a.p. in the relevant column on the sheet outside WS2. Boys should not sign up until they have checked the date with their parents.
