Students have been learning about some of the most important inventions and discoveries ever made.

Youngsters at Crawford’s CEVC Primary School, in Haughley, have also been coming up with their own ideas including a maths robot and a machine which delivers cereal at breakfast.

Headteacher Emma Jones said: “This has been a great opportunity to link home and school learning.

“The children have been inspired and it has created a real buzz around the school.”

Children learnt about the discovery of penicillin, the invention of the telephone and the first teddy bear to be created.
