ALIENS invaded a primary school – but luckily it was all in the name of space education.

A space-themed science fayre was held at St John the Baptist Primary, on Abshot Road, Titchfield Common, to mark the last day before half-term.

The youngsters from Year 5 and 6 had been building up to the fayre for the last three months.

The children were excited to show off their work to parents and family members.

Teacher Kaye Austin said: ‘The whole of this half-term we have been working on space.

‘We went to visit the Astrium Planetarium at the Winchester Science Centre and we learnt about satellites.’

Year 6 pupil and budding TV presenter Leila Oliver made her own educational video which was shown on a big screen.

Leila, 10, said: ‘It was a bit scary but I had a lot of fun. My dad helped me film it.’

Another pupil showing off her work at the fayre was Year 10 pupil Erin Caldwell.

Erin, nine, wrote about her time at the science centre and her report was read out in assembly. She said: ‘I thought it was very fun. I love writing.’

Her grandfather Alan Foster, 69, had come to see her work and said: ‘I am very proud.’

Teacher Sarah Brown said: ‘They’ve all had a fantastic time. It has been brilliant.’
