HATHEROP Castle School pupils enjoyed the wonders of the universe earlier this month when they were visited by a mobile planetarium service.

Children from the Prep 8 class were taught about space via 3D objects that were projected onto the ceiling of the Space Dome.

A spokesman for the school, Deborah Whitehouse, said: “The children left with big smiles and a greater enthusiasm for knowledge of what is beyond our own planet. A thoroughly successful event, which we plan to hold again in the future.”
