If you thought that you were seeing an influx of aliens and mad scientists around Holy Family Catholic School in Worksop recently, your eyes were not deceiving you.

The school was not being invaded, instead staff and children were busy celebrating National Space Week in style.

A full week of activities took place which included a visiting planetarium, talks from the Bassetlaw Astronomical Society and space author Dennis Ashton and a visiting science show.

The school even managed to persuade the science department of All Saints Catholic School in Mansfield to help out with a fun Friday afternoon of good humoured rivalry.

The children and staff finished off the week by dressing up in anything ‘space’ related.

Head teacher Suzanne Shelley commented, ‘There was been a real buzz of excitement around school all week.

“The children have had their learning brought to life whilst having tremendous fun.”

“We are all looking forward to more themed weeks in the future and thank our parents for their continuing support.”

Schools across the country took part in National Space Week, which aims to get children interested in learning about the galaxy and space-related facts and issues.
