Barrow children thrilled by stargazing activities

STELLAR school children learnt about the constellations and the night sky at a new monthly wildlife session.

Ormsgill Nursery and Primary School teamed up with Cumbria Wildlife Trust for a new Barrow Wildside Project Watch Club. The 20 children in the wildlife club at the school, led by Cumbria Wildlife Trust, were thrilled with the activity-filled after-school group.

Dawn Hubble, a special needs teacher at the school, said the children, from Years Three to Six, were given a choice of activities to get involved in. She said: “The activities were based on stargazing and different constellation activities.”

At the night sky learning class the children made their own aliens and planisphere star charts. The kids were then taken outdoors to learn about orientation and how to use a compass to navigate north and south.

Craig Matteson, from Cumbria Wildlife Trust, said the aim of the wildlife session was to “engage young people’s interest in the environment”.

Mrs Hubble added: “The children really enjoyed it. It was a good mix of learning with lots of crafts.”
