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.”
