PUPILS had stars in their eyes at Felsted Primary School last week as five days of dedicated lessons educated them in all things space and science.
From Monday children had the chance to observe and take part in exciting experiments during assemblies exploring things such as chemistry and electricity - all provided by the aptly named company Mad Science.
On the Wednesday a huge space planetarium dome was installed at the school, on Watch House Green, so that pupil's could wander in for 45 minutes and observe stars and planets as they hovered above their heads.
Friday took a wilder approach as snakes became the main attraction, with pupils allowed to touch the skin for a close encounter they will not forget.
