Enjoying a "wonderful" science day at the observatory in Cheshire, the students from Reedley Primary School took advantage of the trip to learn more about space and astronomy whilst also enjoying the unseasonably warm weather as well.

The pupils took part in a range of different science investigations and also got the chance to explore new aspects of space, taking a closer look at the enormous Lovell Telescope, prompting amazement when they realised they could actually receive data from it.
