Children at Wrington Primary School are hoping they will succeed in growing some extraordinary plants after they received seeds from space.

The seeds were sent up with British astronaut Tim Peake as part of a national experiment. It sees a mix of seeds – some of which were sent into space – given to schools and monitored to see whether there is any difference between seeds which went into space, and those which did not.

A spokesman for the school said: “The children are all very excited to have started the experiment and are keen to record the changes observed over the next 35 days.”
