Hingham students explore the universe
Children in Hingham were taken on a journey around the universe in a giant inflatable planetarium.
Pupils at the village's primary school came within touching the distance of stars and planets within the unusual dome which formed part of a special week dedicated to teaching youngsters about space.
Vicki Newrick, co-headteacher, said: 'We all have to crawl inside this large dome structure, where a special projector produces an image of the stars and planets and brings to life the night sky.
'The children are very excited about it and will be getting a unique and dramatic experience that will introduce them to some of the mysteries, wonder and beauty of the universe.'
Other activities during the week have included a visit from the Breckland Astronomical Society, while reception class children have built their own rocket and mission control, and older pupils have been learning about the differences between the Roman and our modern day understanding of the universe.
