Youngsters at a village school have taken a trip into space without even leaving their classrooms.

That’s because pupils at the Ingoldisthorpe Primary School have been given the chance to look at samples of Moon rocks and meteorites, some of which are thought to be more than four billion years old, during a week of activities that ended on Friday.

The samples were loaned to the school by the UK Science and Technology Facilities Council, which runs a school science outreach programme.

Pictured as they took a closer look at the samples are, from left, Terry Wilkes-Harris, Brian Daniels, both 10, Mason Hare, nine, Ben Richards (11) and Aimee Playford-Smith, both 11.
