Dr Tim Gregory – Tour of the Solar System

This week we were lucky enough to be joined by Dr Tim Gregory from the University of Nottingham. Tim is a Cosmo-chemist and star of the BBC programme Astronauts: Do you have what it takes. He, very kindly, offered to take us on a tour of the Solar System and answer some of your questions. There were some fantastic questions answered and Mrs Phillips and I had a lovely time chatting with him. We learnt lots of new things and hope you will too.


The BBC programme Astronauts is currently being aired again at the moment. You can catch up using BBC iPlayer here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b092ng4q


If you have any follow up questions, send them to Mrs Gill or Mrs Phillips and we shall see if Tim can answer them for you.


Hope you enjoy the tour – we did!


Take care and stay safe,

Mrs Gill & Mrs Phillips

I received a very exciting email today. After watching the Dr Tim Gregory video Jasmine, in Magpies class, had some further questions that she wanted to ask. She sent them to me to send on to Tim and today we received this as an answer.
Hope you enjoy it!
If you have any further questions that you would  like answering, ask a grown up to email them to me and I will do my best to get them answered.
Take care and stay safe
Mrs Gill
