Year 5 Design Astrolabes

Year 5 have designed some absolutely wonderful astrolabes, inspired by the astrolabe in our class novel 'Phoenix'. The astrolabe is an instrument used to make astronomical measurements, typically of the altitudes of celestial bodies, and in navigation for calculating latitude, before the development of the sextant. The astrolabe in 'Phoenix' is actually able to transport your mind across all of space, so our astrolabes were designed to also have such incredible powers. We are sure you'll agree - Year 5 did a fantastic job!

We are also busy writing descriptions to accompany the amazing artworks!
