The Sky At Night is a P1J1 topic recommended for study in year six. The purpose of this unit is not to amass a large collection of facts concerning celestial objects but rather to provide real experiences for the pupils from which concepts of the earth's motions and the relative sizes and distances of the more familiar objects in outer space might be developed.

This booklet was designed as a manual to aid the teacher whose background in atronomy might be limited. The content of the booklet should not be regarded as a course of study but rather as a list of suggestions for activities which the pupils could perform. The teacher should feel free to select some of these activities, to let the pupils devise or select their own activities or to proceed entirely upon independent lines while pursuing this topic.
