Pupils at Yatton Junior School demonstrated ‘enthusiasm and creativity’ to host an exhibition showcasing their knowledge of all things space-related.

Year five children at the school were inspired by a trip to @Bristol to create their own display, which included models of the solar system, rockets and space shuttles.

Deputy headteacher Jon Heywood said: “The children became experts on the solar system as they put on their own stunning space exhibition.

“Following a fascinating visit to @Bristol, the children were motivated to produce a whole range of exhibits of their own, including giant 3D models of the solar system, rockets and space shuttles.

“The children demonstrated great enthusiasm and creativity.
