Rocket science has kept primary school pupils from Portbury busy in recent weeks.
As part of the South West Science Challenge, children from St Mary’s Primary School were asked to create a mini rocket.
The aim of the competition was for the pupils to get their rocket mice to fly the highest.
The pupils had to design, decorate and construct their rockets using bottles before setting them up on the launch pad.
Several teams managed to get their rocket through a hoop which was placed 10 metres away.
