Gad’s Kindergarten children took a trip to the Moon, ahead of taking part in space-themed activities on World Book Day this Thursday.
The four to seven-year-olds visited the Museum of the Moon at Rochester Cathedral to find out more about the solar system and prepare for reading children’s author Simon Bartram’s Man on the Moon: a day in the life of Bob together.
As the Gad’s year six classmates did before them, on their class trip to the moon last week, the Kindergarten cohort carried out lunar-inspired challenges and worksheets.
KR’s class bear ‘Shine’ joined student Ffion, whose turn it is to look after the cuddly friend this week and write a diary about their adventures together.
The giant replica of the moon is an artwork installation in the Cathedral’s Nave. It measures seven metres in diameter and features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. Each centimetre represents 5km of the moon’s surface. Alongside the installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition.
