Schoolchildren enjoyed a stargazing party with their teachers and parents.

Eighty pupils and parents at Uppingham CE Primary School used telescopes to view the stars and planets before turning a sandpit into Mars.

They used water bombs to make craters, Lego to build space stations and cardboard boxes to make rockets.

Headteacher Iain Peden said: “Not only was it a great chance for children and parents to work together but it also reinforced the importance of learning outside the classroom and outside the normal school day.”

Our picture shows pupils Solomon Wilby, nine, Charlie Ward, nine, and William Dean, eight, at the stargazing party.
