Coco under the stars

Friday night was movie night and what a beautiful night it was. The sky was clear and the moon and stars were on full show. Families arrived and quickly settled into their spots to watch the sun go down. There was even a 'small' pizza delivery for a few of the families who had clubbed together - thank goodness he didn't drop them!

Coco was a very enjoyable film which, drawing on Mexican folklore, follows the journey of a young boy who wants to be a musician. Kids and adults enjoyed the film but especially spending time together as families.

The children in Early Years have been exploring space through their topic 'The World Beyond'. The movie night presented the perfect opportunity to use the telescope that had been loaned to the children by a kindly family.  It was set up in the quadrant alongside the audience, allowing lots of viewers to get 'up-close' to the moon.  Mr Gould even managed to capture a remarkable photo, using his phone, through the telescope.
