“I can’t wait to arrive at school and go home!!!”

It’s Thursday 17th of November when room 14 and some parents went to One Tree Hill & go to the Star dome. As we walked out of the bus we had morning tea. Then we went for a LONG walk up to the summit and down.

We had an amazing view once we reached the top of the summit. I could see were the bus dropped us off. As we were walking down Ms Squires our teacher told us we could play in the crater. It was a very bad day for me because a lava rock fell on my thigh and another rock my fell on my pinkie. ”ARRGHH” I shouted. We had lunch after.

Were finally about to enter the Star dome,and I am very excited. There was a lady called Petra and she was our star dome teacher.We had a look at the planets.I found a mars meteoroid and a moon meteoroid.Can you name the planets from closest to the sun? Next we went into the Star Dome,the actual thing. It is just a dome ceiling with a large projector. We watched a movie about two kids and a book with a head. I was about when they traveled to all 8 planets and a dwarf planet. Then we went into the space room. Petra was in there she made us an own solar system.

I love the Star Dome because I like space and our solar system.I want to come back here another time!!!


  1. Hey Wyatt,
    My name is Kevin Hutchinson, and I am a student in EDM310 at the University of South Alabama. I think observatories are really neat. Unfortunately, I have never been able to visit one. I am sorry to hear about your injuries. I hope they did not ruin the entire experience for you. The planets were always one of my favorite science subjects. The eight planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. Is this correct? I went to school my entire life believing Pluto was a planet, and I was very surprised at the news of it being demoted to a dwarf. It seems like you went on an awesome field trip, and you apparently learned a lot. Keep up your hard work studying our solar system.

  2. Thanks Kevin,
    I like observatories too! The Stardome is the only observatorie I've ever been to and I want to go to another one.Space and stars are my favorite subject,but we don't do science here in New Zealand!

    Thanks again,Wyatt
