MARTIANS met cave men in the playground at a Portishead school as a WOW day marked the launch of two new topics.
Year one children at St Peter’s Primary School dressed the part as their space project got under way.
This term they will be reading story books about intergalactic adventures and exploring space travel, taking in a variety of subjects including science, mathematics, literature and art.
Meanwhile, pupils in year five began investigating life more than 6,000 years ago.
Dressed in Neolithic costumes, the youngsters were introduced to the novel Wolf Brother by Michele Paver, in which 12-year-old Torak and his wolf cub companion journey through deep forests, across giant glaciers and into dangers they never imagined, to save their world.
