Building robots helped pupils to relax after some gruelling exams at a Nailsea school.

Year six pupils from Grove Junior School, in Whiteoak Way, were treated to a robotics day after getting through a week of SATs tests and revision.

The students built robots from their kits and were then taught how to programme them by volunteers from Wessex Set Point.

The theme was on space and the students programmed their robots to drive over ramps and move boulders by following a series of instructions.

Children were also able to wear their own clothes to school and they are now preparing for a surprise production for their parents.

The robotics day is put on every year as a reward for the students after taking their SATs.
