Pupils in Portishead were able to explore the wonders of space from their own classroom.
High Down Junior School students received a visit from Jo Richardson from the Space Detectives who taught the inquisitive youngsters some interesting facts.
Jo last year helped the school obtain a space education quality mark for its work on the Tim Peake Primary Project and her visit this month was equally informative.
A school spokesman said: “This time, Jo extended the children’s knowledge of stage rockets beyond the Saturn V to the Soyuz craft and the recent success of the Falcon Heavy rocket launch in Florida.
“Best of all, the children were also able to explore the surface of the Moon via Jo’s virtual reality headsets, where they drove the lunar buggy on the Apollo 15 mission.”
