PUPILS had an atmospheric lesson inside an inflatable planetarium.

Youngsters at Wittering Primary School were treated to a stellar morning when StarLincs brought its blow-up dome to class.

Key Stage 2 co-ordinator Paula Fox said: “It’s a fun way to get across some quite complicated concepts in science. It’s very atmospheric and brings the subject to life.

“It’s a nice end to the topic and the children really enjoyed it. They have been learning about day and night, the position of the planets, how the earth moves around the sun and about the seasons.”

Pupils are also getting used to life under new headteacher Rhys Thrower, who has joined from Newton Primary School near St Neots.
