PUPILS embarked on an out-of-this-world adventure at Lavant Primary School, learning how to be astronauts as part of a cosmic topic.

The trainee astronauts took part in a number of team-building activities and ‘space missions’ on the last day of their spring-term earth, sun, infinity and beyond topic.

Earlier on in the term they visited the science museum in London and studied the lunar landing of 1969.

They spent the day dressed as astronauts, making their helmets from a number of things including lampshades covered in papermache.

Deputy headteacher Chris Williams and teacher of the Year 5 class said: “It was amazing, there was a lot of work that had gone into making them.

“I’m really pleased the children were so inspired by the topic, and that they were working so well as a team.

“They were using a wide range of skills to solve problems together and really enjoying their learning.”
