The pupils of Apple Tree Nursery have been busy learning about space - and even got to chat with a NASA employee for their studies!

One of the youngsters’ parents has a cousin who works for the space programme in the US and took part in a Skype call to talk to the children and answer their questions.

As part of the project the children also held a competition to name a star, with Buteman editor, Craig Borland, selecting the winning name. The winning entry - ‘Twilight Sparkle - came from Ashlyn Williamson (pictured above with Craig).

We think you’ll agree it’s a very pretty name for a star!
