Creative youngsters had lift-off with a space rocket challenge at their school.

Year 1 pupils at Studfall Infants School in Corby were challenged to design and construct a space rocket at home with their family to link with their space topic and trip to the Leicester Space Centre.

Design and technology teacher Angie Lawlor gave each child a cardboard tube as a starting point and the rest was down to them.

Each of the 90 children who entered received a certificate and the three winners, Amelia Ford, Cerys Esselmont and Morgan Harvey, received a Space Centre gift and an activity book.

Design and technology co-ordinator Lorraine Corkan said: “There were some wonderful designs and it was super that families were so involved with the children and their project.”
