  • Liked:

  • Did not like:
    • drawing people and answering question
  • Top 3 things:
    • dome – nice view and got to lie down; dress up – because you got to design an alien; dance – it was funny and you learn the order of the planets
    • Dome, dressing up, colouring; why – in the dome you can see everything, dressing up – we all got a go, colouring – we got to colour…and we learnt more things about space

  • I learnt that the biggest planet is Jupiter
